After a separate ruling allowed "disparaging" words to be trademarked, the groups fighting the Washington Redskins' name ended their lawsuit.
The fight over the Washington Redskins trademark appears to be over.
The Department of Justice and a Native American group dropped their challenge to the trademark. They were initially arguing that "Redskins" shouldn't be protected because a law called the Lanham Act bans trademarks that could be disparaging.
But the Supreme Court struck down that law when it ruled a rock band called The Slants could trademark their name. The trademark was previously rejected because the phrase can be used as a racial slur for Asian people.
The band's members are Asian-American and said they wanted to reclaim the word from its hurtful connotation.
The team has taken more heat than other Native American-themed squads, like the Cleveland Indians and Atlanta Braves, because "redskin" was initially a term given to the scalp of a Native American who was killed for a bounty.
The Native American group said it still finds the name offensive, but a lawyer representing the group said, "There's no more challenge to make."
