Lawyer Who Started Fight Over "R-Word" Mascot Awaits Decision - Minnesota Lawyer
Trademark attorney Stephen Baird was profiled in the Minnesota Lawyer article
"Lawyer who started fight over ‘R-word’ mascot awaits decision."
The article summarizes Baird's involvement in the lawsuit against the
Washington Redskins' federal trademark
protections. Though his work on the case
ended when he moved to Winthrop & Weinstine, a new group of plaintiffs has
reprised the trademark challenge, using
Baird's original argument with even more
evidence. A federal judge in the Eastern District of Virginia will hear
oral arguments next month, and then the case will likely go to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.
