Los Angeles • A federal appeals court on Monday upheld a $319 million verdict over profits from the game show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and rejected Walt Disney Co.'s request for a new trial.
A jury decided in 2010 that Disney hid the show's profits from its creators, London-based Celador International. The ruling by a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found no issues with the verdict or with a judge's rulings in the case.
"I am pleased that justice has been done," Celador Chairman Paul Smith said in a statement.
