A federal judge declared a mistrial Wednesday in the legal dispute between toy giant MGA Entertainment Inc. and rapper Clifford “T.I.” Harris and his wife, singer-songwriter Tameka “Tiny” Harris, over the popular OMG LOL Surprise doll line.

U.S. District Judge James Selna declared a mistrial following the playing of deposition testimony from a consumer, who said she stopped buying the dolls because she believed the Harris family’s claims that MGA had lifted the designs for the doll line from the Harrises’ OMG Girlz group and profited through misappropriation of Black culture. Selna had ruled prior to trial that claims of “cultural appropriation” were out of bounds.

Following the ruling of a mistrial, MGA issued a statement saying, “Diversity has always been a key value at MGA Entertainment in both our people and our toys. In fact, MGA brought diversity to the fashion doll category more than 21 years ago with the introduction of Bratz dolls. We are disappointed that the trial was cut short but look forward to vindicating our rights in the next trial.”
