The notorious Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas has lost its legal battle to stop a New York delicatessen from selling its own "Triple Bypass Sandwich." A federal judge ruled that the 2nd Avenue Deli's $34.95 pile of pastrami between potato latkes clearly qualified for the description, and did not infringe on the H.A.G.'s trademark for "Bypass Burgers." "We feel that we've been vindicated," said deli owner Jeremy Lebewohl.
