A judge has reached a decision in the case of the Lady Gaga dool.
The decision is that Gaga did not give final approval to a toy company for their prototype dolls of the pop star.
A spokesperson for the pop star said in a statement: “Lady Gaga is pleased that the court refused Mga’s request and the entertainer will ask the judge in August to dismiss the “ill-conceived lawsuit,” which is “a dispute between Universal Music Group’s merchandising company and Mga.”
Mga Entertainment had filed a $10 million lawsuit against the singer, claiming she “engaged in intentional and deliberate delays” to stop the toy from being distributed until 2013, insisting that she was delaying so that the doll release coincided with the release of her new album and perfume.
Mga paid Universal’s merchandising group $1 million to run the dolls after getting assurances that Gaga and her management loved the product.
Supreme Court Justice Jeffrey Oing has denied the company’s request to force Gaga to approve their design, possibly foiling their plan to have the doll ready for release by Christmas.
The case will be reconsidered in August, which is when Mga can get approval if they want the dolls to appear in shops in time for the Christmas shopping season.
