    Mattel sued MGA in 2004, alleging that Bratz designer Carter Bryant developed the concept for the pouty-lipped doll (pictured) while working for Mattel.

    A federal judge has upheld a $100 million jury verdict for toymaker Mattel in a lengthy legal battle over rights to the Bratz doll, a rival to Mattel's Barbie.

    Judge Stephen Larson also confirmed in his ruling late Monday that the Bratz doll is Mattel property.

    He appointed a temporary federal receiver to take control of the Bratz brand and the assets of MGA Entertainment, which had marketed the doll since 2001.

    Mattel sued MGA in 2004, alleging that Bratz designer Carter Bryant developed the concept for the pouty-lipped doll while working for Mattel.

    A jury last year awarded Mattel $10 million for copyright infringement and $90 million for breach of contract.
