Another bad season for the Redskins

Which side is he on?

The Eastern District of Virginia has ruled (link to opinion here) on the summary judgment motions in Pro Football v. Blackhorse in the NFL’s appeal to the District Court of the TTAB’s cancellation of the REDSKINS trademark registration.

The opinion is 70 pages long.  Spoiler alert:  It doesn’t come out good for the Redskins.

There will be plenty of commentary on this, an doubtless an appeal, but you’re not going to get that commentary from me.  Not here, anyway, and not before we finish up our own appeal business.

UPDATE: Christine Haight Farley is loving it; here’s reporting by the World IP Review.

WAIT, THERE’S MORE: Analysis from John Farmer.  John Welch:  “An impressive opinion.”
