Disney denied appeal
 
From the Hollywood Reporter....
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeal on Monday denied the Walt Disney Co.'s request for a new trial of its $319 million loss to the producer of the former hit ABC series Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

In a short ruling issued Monday, the three-judge appeals court panel upheld U.S. District Court Judge Virginia Phillips' decision to deny Disney a new trial in the case. That means the damage award, which shocked Hollywood when it was announced by a federal jury in 2010, will stand unless the U.S. Supreme Court intervenes.


:eek:

1) Disney has been found guilty of stealing inetellectual property before.
2) This time, they didn't get away with it.
3) And, the appeal sustained it.
