Judge sides with Mattel over doll rights

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.
