Seven American Indians petitioned to cancel trade mark registrations for various REDSKINS trade marks; the district court's grant of summary judgment against them for laches (unreasonable delay) was remanded by the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit for a rehearing in respect of one of the petitioners on the basis that the district court ‘started the laches clock’ in 1967, when he was only 1 year old, thus contravening the equitable principle that laches runs only from the time a party has reached the age of majority.
