Supreme Court hands a win to the Redskins

After an upset victory on Sunday over the Denver Broncos, the Washington Redskins won another battle on Monday in the Supreme Court.

The Associated Press reports that the Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal from Suzan Shown Harjo, who is part of a group of Native Americans have been fighting the Redskins over its team name for nearly two decades.

The group won some early victories in the early 1990s, and by 1999 the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office officially canceled the team's trademark ownership of the name, which had first been issued in 1967.

The cancellation was overturned in 2003, and the decision has been mired in appeals ever since, until today.
