Redskins, Native American group take name battle to court

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – The Redskins front office was in court Thursday fighting to keep ownership of their team name.

ESPN is reporting that a group of Native Americans wants the team to lose trademark protection for the name “Redskins.”

If the court approves the petition any company could profit from using the team’s name.

The group hopes that owner Dan Snyder would change the team name to something only his organization could profit from.

The Redskins insist that the nickname honors NativeĀ AmericansĀ and is not intended to be offensive.
