Mattel will ask the US Court of Appeals to review a ruling which awarded MGA $225 million in punitive damages, attorney fees and costs. The ruling brought the total award in the Bratz trial to $310 million.

A jury in April agreed with MGA that Mattel stole its trade secrets when employees entered MGA’s showrooms at toy fairs using fake details.

The jurors awarded MGA $3.4 million for each of 26 instances in which they found Mattel misappropriated a trade secret, a total of $88.4 million.
