Vt. man to learn of his fight to 'eat more kale'

(AP) _ A Vermont folk artist who built a T-shirt business around the term ``eat more kale'' says he's expecting to learn more about his legal fight to protect the term in his fight with the fast food giant Chick-fil-A.

Bo Muller-Moore of Montpelier says he expects his lawyer to deliver the news to him Monday about a ruling by the U.S. Trademark office in the case.

The Chick-fil-A restaurant chain has argued Muller-Moore's T-shirt infringes on its trademarked ``eat mor chikin'' slogan.

The legal battle for the term prompted Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin to say in December 2011 the state would do all it could to help Muller-Moore in his battle with Chick-fil-A.

Muller-Moore says he's is working on a movie about his fight with Chick-fil-A.
