VAN NUYS, Calif., May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Last Thursday, May 12th, the California 2nd District Court of Appeal, Honorable Justices Bigelow, Rubin and Flier presiding, unanimously rejected Mattel, Inc.'s request for writ of mandate petitioning the Court for extraordinary relief to block MGA Entertainment's (MGAE) trade secret theft lawsuit. The 2nd District's order reasoned that Mattel had not demonstrated entitlement to such relief, leaving the case clear to proceed in the lower court.
"I am glad the justices were able to see through Mattel's masquerade and deny the writ entirely," said MGA Entertainment CEO, Isaac Larian. "We shall continue to pursue our trade secret theft claims against Mattel to the fullest extent and look forward to justice finally being served."
