Update on Bratz case

An update on a case I wrote about here. From Corporate Counsel Center - News:

"RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - The judge who barred MGA Entertainment Inc. from selling or making its popular Bratz dolls agreed Tuesday to extend a deadline he set for the company to take the products off store shelves.

MGA, which was initially told to stop selling Bratz by Feb. 11, had argued in court that retailers would not order the toys unless the court could guarantee they would remain in stores through most of 2009. U.S. District Judge Stephen Larson obliged, and allowed MGA to file a motion for a later deadline by next week.

'Given the clear importance of the Bratz line to MGA's financial health, it's not a big leap to see that (the February deadline) would have significant economic impact on the viability of MGA,' Larson said."
