The jury also ruled that MGA and its CEO Isaac Larian were liable for converting Mattel property for their own use and intentionally interfering with the contractual duties owed by Bryant to Mattel.

"MGA and Isaac Larian took what did not belong to them," John Quinn, a lawyer for Mattel, said during a conference call detailing the verdict.

Larian said in a prepared statement that MGA will prevail in the upcoming damages phase of the case or possibly in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
