Native Americans Ask Supreme Court to Sack Redskins Trademark: A group of Native Americans have filed a petition for certiorari in the case Susan Harjo v. Pro-Football, Inc., asking the Supreme Court to cancel the trademark of the Washington Redskins on the grounds that it violates the Lanham Act, which bars the registration of "disparaging, scandalous, contemptuous or disreputable" marks. The last round of the legal battle, which began in 1992, went to the Redskins when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled that the plaintiffs waited to long to file suit. Back in 1999, Harjo conducted an online chat on ESPN.Com where she took some unbelievable abuse from angry fans. "You pay taxes? Give me a break," said one questioner. "No, you don't. How can you come on here and lie like that."
