And like last time, it will be overturned by the Appeals Court.WASHINGTON — A U.S. District Court judge has ordered the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office to cancel six federal registrations for trademarks related to the Washington Redskins. U.S. Judge Gerald Bruce Lee also upheld the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office's decision in June 2014 that the National Football League team’s nickname might be disparaging to Native Americans.

Supreme Court rules trademark law banning offensive names is unconstitutional
The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday that a federal trademark law banning offensive names is unconstitutional.
The case dealt with an Oregon-based "Chinatown dance rock" band that was denied a trademark because its name – The Slants – was deemed racially disparaging.
The court ruled 8-0 in favor of the rock band.
