Supreme Court Denies Cert in "Veggie Tales" Lawsuit

The parties had argued over the right to sell and distribute products, including DVDs, from the wildly popular "Veggie Tales", a Christian themed series of shows for children. In its decision, the 5th Circuit found that "no sufficient writing" existed to create a formal contract between the parties, even though they had engaged in negotiations for years.
