A federal judge has sided with the Washington
Redskins in a lawsuit brought by American Indians who consider the
team's name racially offensive.
A group of Native Americans has been trying to get the courts to
cancel the Redskins' trademark so that the team could no longer
market its name.
But a U.S. district judge in Washington says the plaintiffs
waited too long to bring their case to court. She added that her
ruling does not decide "the appropriateness of Native American
imagery for team names."
