A Washington Redskins helmet is seen on the field before a game on September 21, 2014 in Philadelphia, PennsylvaniaThe US Department of Justice said Friday it would intervene in the court battle over whether the NFL’s Washington Redskins should be able to trademark their name. The club has been under pressure from Native American groups who argue that the name is offensive. The Department of Justice said Friday it was intervening in the case to fight the claim that the Lanham Act, which is preventing the trademarks, is unconstitutional. “The Department of Justice is dedicated to defending the constitutionality of the important statute ensuring that trademark issues involving disparaging and derogatory language are dealt with fairly,” said Joyce R. Branda, acting assistant attorney general for the department’s Civil Division.
