MONTPELIER, Vt. -- A Vermont folk artist has gotten a "preliminary no" in his legal battle with Chick-fil-A over a company slogan.

Bo Muller-Moore built a T-shirt business around the phrase "Eat More Kale." Chick-fil-A has argued that the T-shirt infringes on its trademarked "Eat Mor Chikin" slogan.

Monday, the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office gave Muller-Moore a preliminary no against him being allowed to use the term.

In December 2011, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin said the state would do all it could to help Muller-Moore fight Chick-fil-A.
