New year, new drama for Mattel.
Patricia Day of the punk rock group HorrorPops is suing the doll maker and Hard Rock Cafe claiming they used her likeness for their Rockabilly Barbie without her permission.
Even though Mattel is based out of California and Hard Rock's in Florida, the lawsuit was filed in Indiana, which "has the most favorable 'right of publicity' statute in the United States".
Patricia is asking for all the profits made from the doll, to recall and destroy the doll, punitive damages, and attorney fees.
Think she'll get it???
