WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear a case brought by a clothing line named Fuct, which the government has refused to register, claiming it would promote vulgarity. The case pits a provision of U.S. trademark law that allows the government to deny requests on the basis "immoral" or "scandalous" words against the bedrock principles of free speech enshrined in the Constitution. A date of hearing has not yet been fixed. But it is a safe bet no case before it will have exposed the nation's top judges to so many profanities. The street wear brand was founded in 1990 by Los Angeles-based designer Erik Brunetti.
