Trial Begins Today In Mattel-MGA Case Over Bratz Dolls

The archrivals are set to present opening statements Tuesday involving Mattel’s copyright infringement allegations, along with MGA’s counterclaim of unfair business practices and Mattel’s accusation of theft of trade secrets by its competitor. …”This is going to be a knockdown, drag-out fight, and it’s going to go on for months,” [Jack] Lerner, [professor at USC Gould School of Law,] said. “The jury is going to be given a massive amount of questions to decide, each one of which could cost MGA. And it’s higher stakes for MGA because Mattel is so much bigger of a company.”
