Yesterday, as many of you AGDN readers know, astronomer Lucianne Walkowicz sued American Girl and accused them of stealing her likeness for the Luciana Vega doll. A representative for American Girl released this statement regarding the lawsuit:
"American Girl takes great pride in creating original characters for girls. We take any allegations to the contrary extremely seriously, and intend to defend the case vigorously. As it is our policy not to comment on pending litigation, we can’t comment further."
