Designer's mom saw Bratz drafts

Business Briefing / TOYS

July 02, 2008|From Times Wire Services

The mother of Bratz designer Carter Bryant said her son showed her the original sketches for MGA Entertainment Inc.'s pouty, multiethnic fashion dolls in 1998, when he was living in Missouri and not working for Mattel Inc.

Janet Bryant's videotaped testimony was shown in federal court in Riverside, where a jury will be asked to decide when Carter Bryant, a former Mattel Barbie designer, made the original Bratz drawings. If Mattel can prove he made the drawings while he worked there, the toy maker can seek hundreds of millions of dollars in damages from MGA.
