WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court on Monday struck down part of a law that bans offensive trademarks in a ruling that is expected to help the Washington Redskins in their legal fight over the team name.
The justices ruled that the 71-year-old trademark law barring disparaging terms infringes free speech rights.
The ruling is a victory for the Asian-American rock band called the Slants, but the case was closely watched for the impact it would have on the separate dispute involving the Washington football team.

Despite increasing national attention to prescription price sticker-shock, a recent study found that in 2016 alone, New York state saved $21 billion by choosing generic prescription drugs over brand-name supplies.
According to the Association for Accessible Medicines, nearly 90 percent of prescriptions nationally are filled with generics, while constituting only 26 percent of all drug spending. This means that in the United States, 11 percent of prescriptions make up 74 percent of drug costs.

MASSENA — Two graduating Massena Central High School seniors shared their concerns with Board of Education members Thursday night about the use of the Red Raider school nickname and, in some cases, the use of the old Indian head mascot or lack of any mascot.
Superintendent Patrick H. Brady said two seniors, Paige Cook and KC Herne, along with counselor Julie White, had addressed the board’s Policy Committee in May about the lack of a school mascot and continued use of the old mascot in some circles. They were part of a School Climate Committee that had been formed in October following a racial incident at the high school led to disparaging remarks on social media and divisiveness among students.
