January 17, 2017: The Slants Case goes to the Supreme Court

January 17, 2017: The Slants Case goes to the Supreme Court

The Slants are a musical group, made up of Asian-American artists. They want to trademark their group name, but the government office that handles trademarks refused, saying "The Slants" is an offensive term. The group says this is a free speech case. The Supreme Court will hear it on Wednesday, Jan. 17th.
Is this a case of the government in the censoring business? Or, are they acting on behalf of us - the citizens - and what we deem to be socially appropriate?
Legal Analyst Royal Oakes lays out the case and then Ronn talks with listeners about this free speech issue.
