It was the fault or Mattel's laywers. To make their $300 or $400 million, they told Mattel there was enough evidence to prove the case. Mattel, desperately wanting to stop Bratz with this, were too trusting in their lawyers. Instead, all Mattel's lawyers did was make a bunch of accusations that appeared to fit some of the facts - as long as other facts could be carefully hid. It didn't work. Mattel should sue Quinn to get their money back.
