"Beverly Hillbillies" star Donna Douglas has settled a lawsuit she filed over a Barbie doll in her classic TV character's likeness. Douglas, 78, filed a lawsuit against Mattel and CBS's consumer products division in May, seeking a minimum of $75,000 in damages after charging Mattel was "engaging in the unauthorized use" of her name and likeness to sell an Elly May Barbie doll. - http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/12/30/idUS198763967420111230The details of the settlement was confidential, but she has gotten at least 75.000 from it.
"She was happy with the result," said one of Douglas' attorneys, Charles von Simson.
The doll, released in late 2010, is dressed in jeans with a rope belt. Its long, blonde hair is a curly mop with loose, long pigtails — a style that Douglas still sometimes wears. The package includes a photo of her and a promotional description of the doll names Douglas, the lawsuit said. - http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505245_162-57349935/settlement-in-elly-mae-clampett-barbie-doll-suit/
