April 28, 2009 --A judge upheld a verdict for Mattel over rights to the Bratz doll line. Mattel claimed MGA Entertainment stole the idea for the Bratz doll by hiring a Mattel employee.
Last summer, a jury agreed and awarded Mattel $100 million in damages. A judge agreed that verdict should stand.
MGA must stop producing the popular dolls.
Existing Bratz dolls can stay on store shelves through the end of the year.
