Nude Barbie Won

A federal judge told Barbie creator Mattel Inc. to pay $1.8 million in legal and court fees to a Utah artist who uses nude Barbie dolls in some of his photographic work /in sexual poses in or around household objects/. Judge dismissed Mattelss attempts to stop Thomas Forsythe as "groundless and unreasonable".

In December 1999 Mattel successfully sued a publisher over a book entitled Adios, Barbie. Last year, however, the Supreme Court upheld an earlier court's dismissal of a suit over a sexually suggestive pop song Barbie Girl, which Mattel claimed defamed Barbie.
