Battle of the Heart Attack Sandwiches

The WSJ law blog has this post about two competing burgers, both of which are decadent to the extreme.

New York City’s 2nd Avenue Deli has its  “Instant Heart Attack Sandwich” (with latkes instead of bread) and plans a new “Triple Bypass Sandwich.”  Las Vegas’s Heart Attack Grill sent the deli a cease-and-desist letter saying that it was infringing its trademarks.

The verdict?  The SDNY ruled that the 2nd Avenue Deli can sell the Instant Heart Attack Sandwich–in Manhattan only.
