Disney Wins a Ruling in Long Pooh Dispute
A federal judge Tuesday dismissed several claims against Walt Disney Co. brought by a Beverly Hills family that holds the merchandising rights to Winnie the Pooh.U.S. District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper threw out three of the Slesinger family's claims in a case dealing with copyright for Winnie the Pooh. Cooper set aside the Slesingers' nine other claims, saying they should be resolved after a decision is reached in an appeal of a related state court case, which Disney won. "We're pleased with the court's decision," said Daniel Petrocelli, Disney's attorney in the long-running litigation. Patricia Slesinger saw a silver lining in the judge's decision. "The ruling allows our case to proceed," she said.
