Heart Attack Stops Heart Stoppers in Federal Court

The Heart Attack Grill is a medically themed hamburger grill restaurant which has garnered considerable national media attention.  Copyists periodically arise to ride on the coattails of the famous Heart Attack Grill restaurant.  Due to the contrasting parody of medicine and fast food when Heart Attack sues others, the event becomes national news.  Recently, Heart Attack sued Heart Stoppers restaurant in federal court which generated some interesting commentary at OnPoint and in the ABA Journal (available here)

On May 3, 2010, U.S. District Court Judge Marra entered a Final Judgment which, among other things, confirmed Heart Attack’s superior rights to its medically themed hamburger grill restaurant and ordered Heart Stoppers to cease all use of the same.  See HAG, LLC and Jon Basso v. B & I Enterprises, d/b/a Heart Stoppers and Robert Kutnick and Ignazio Lena, Case No. 10-80127-CIV-MARRA/JOHNSON, U.S. District Court, S.D. of  Florida, Judge Marra (Available here)
