Todd Banks’ valiant attempt to invalidate Al Johnson’s Restaurant’s Goats on the Roof trade dress as “demeaning to goats” (chronicled here in December) has ended not with a bang, or a whimper, or even with a fish fry, but with a denial of a cert petition.

(Photo is a blurry picture of my son, last year on his 9th birthday, rocking in the Al Johnson’s waiting area, patient for his meatball platter, with mad respect for the goats.)
