Why was "Taco Tuesday" banned in New Jersey?

In May, Taco Bell launched a campaign to cancel the "Taco Tuesday" trademark everywhere, so that anyone who sells or makes tacos could freely say "Taco Tuesday" in every state. But one restaurant in New Jersey refused to let it go.

Gregory’s Restaurant and Bar located in Somers Point, New Jersey trademarked the phrase "Taco Tuesday" in 1979, and they were refusing to let it go, no matter how much Taco Bell asked.

Their stance is still loud and clear on their website:

"The Original Taco Tuesday®... We served our first tacos on a Tuesday night in February 1979... It's been history ever since."
