Original Joe's loses court battle over name

Owners of the downtown eatery Original Joe's lost a court battle to block another restaurant from using a similar name.

A U.S. district court judge refused to issue a restraining order against Uptown Joe’s, which opened Nov. 11 in the Hotel Majestic.

Original Joe’s, which has been closed since a 2007 fire, featured tuxedo-clad waiters serving Italian comfort food. Uptown Joe’s has a similar menu and apparently offered to open under the Original Joe’s moniker.
