The toy company was in the process of manufacturing a Lady Gaga doll when the popstar allegedly requested a last-minute removal of the doll’s voice chip. The change would result in the MGA missing its holiday shipment, and thus, losing out on a lot of money. MGA handed Gaga a $10 million lawsuit for damages and asked the court to allow manufacturing and distribution as is — with the voice chip.
MGA claims that approval and decisions need to be made now in order to make the holiday deadline. The New York Daily News reports that Supreme Court Justice Jeffrey Oing refused MGA’s distribution request, but said that he’d reconsider the case in late August.
With or without the voice chip, we’re kind of excited to see this doll now.
