Redskins Name Is an 'Ethnic Slur,' Says Lawyer

Sept. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Jesse Witten, partner at Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, talks with Bloomberg Law's Spencer Mazyck about his representation of a group of Native Americans who have petitioned to cancel the trademark registrations of the National Football League's Washington, D.C. team, the "Washington Redskins." Witten, in this "Rainmakers" episode, also argues that his clients' on-going petition before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board should be granted because the trademarks at issue contain matter that may disparage Native Americans.
