New York, May 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) There is a legal battle going on in the United States for the right to sell the “heart attack” sandwich. The Heart Attack Grill in Chandler, Arizona and Avenue Deli have started a legal battle to determine if one of the restaurants have exclusive right to serve the cholesterol-laden meal.

The battle begun when The Heart Attack Grill sent a notice to Deli to stop using the name “heart attack” for their sandwiches warning that they might take a legal action against the restaurant for trademark violations.

Deli struck back by filing a suit of their own. In the suit, the company is asking the court to allow them use the name for their meal. The suit further asked the court that they should be granted the permission to put Triple Bypass Sandwich on its menu. The Heart Attack Grill introduced the Triple Bypass Burger and the move by Deli is seen as a mischievous one.

The owner of Deli, Jack Lebewohl, denied ever knowing that there is a company called The Heart Attack Grill. He drew the distinction between the two restaurants when he said that, “Our food is kosher, and theirs is not.”
