The Star Press: “Morton’s vs. Morton’s Fizzled“:
When Ty Morton opened Morton’s Pub & Grub in downtown Muncie last October, the new restaurateur quickly received a letter from the Morton’s of Chicago steakhouse chain, threatening legal action over supposed infringement of the eatery’s name.
Morton, noting he was only using his own name, was defiant. In the weeks that followed, Morton and attorneys for the Chicago steakhouse communicated via letters.
But Morton said last week that the company’s complaint eventually faded away.
