Mattel, my former employer and maker of Barbie and Hot Wheels won an injunction against MGA, the makers of the Bratz dolls.
As you recall there has been a long fight with MGA in that a former employee of Mattel, Carter Bryant, actually came up with the idea while under the employ of Mattel. Since the, Bryant had gone to work for MGA and the Bratz line was introduced. See: They Were Such Bratz
In a late ruling on Wednesday and Federal and U.S. District judge ordered MGA to discontinue sales and to destroy all specialized plates, molds, equipment used to make the dolls.
MGA will be allowed to sell the Bratz dolls thru the Holiday season.
