Justice Department drops fight over 'Redskins' name

The Justice Department on Thursday dropped the legal challenge to the the Washington Redskins' name, the Associated Press reported.

According to the AP, the Trump administration dropped the challenge in a letter to the Supreme Court in response to last week's ruling in Matal V. Tam, in which an Asian-American rock band won the right to copyright the name "The Slants," despite the name's offensive connotation.

In the Thursday letter, the Justice Department argues that the Matal V. Tam decision means that the court would decide in favor of the Washington Redskins if the case went before the justices.

Last week, Redskins owner Dan Snyder drew the same conclusion, and said he was "thrilled" by the court's decision in the copyright case His lawyer, Lisa Blatt, issued a statement saying that the court's decision resolved the dispute over the NFL team's name.

They had no choice but to drop it, because of the supreme court ruling... It is just a witch hunt too... Anything and everything the govt can turn upside down is what they are trying to do... And since 90% of most people watch football, they had to get their hands in it too... What is funny, is how all sports teams of what you can consider racial names or inappropriate names but they never once mentioned that!!!! Also, if you go looking for something, eventually you can find something, anything to fit what you are trying to find... Sometimes as a whole, the evidence is mute or meaningless but if you use parts of it, anything and everything in small chunks can be used to help your argument...

It was utterly stupid for the Justice Dept to get involved in the first place. This has NOTHING to do with the government. Period.

At least CNN will have a new talking point for the next 6months, since the Russian Nothingburger failed.
