    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.
