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.

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.
