Twin Peaks sues rival Northern Exposure

There's generally not much fun with a lawsuit, but the online Inside Counsel recently tried to have a little at the expense of Hooters take-off Twin Peaks, a restaurant chain that will be opening on Rock Road this spring.

"Two wrongs may not make a right, but two bad puns can make a lawsuit," the magazine writes.

"Texas-based Twin Peaks restaurant is suing Arkansas-based Northern Exposure for trademark infringement. Both eateries specialize in ‘scenic views’ and turning TV show names into double-entendre. Twin Peaks accuses Northern Exposure of infringing on its snowcapped mountain logo and slogan."
