American Girl lawsuit resolved

A lawsuit filed against Middleton-based American Girl has been dismissed, according to a report from the Wisconsin State Journal. Astronomer and science presenter Lucianne Walkowicz, based at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium, claimed the doll manufacturer created a doll in the astronomer’s likeness without permission. The April 2020 suit has been resolved to both sides’ satisfaction and without any monetary considerations, but no specific details about the settlement were disclosed.
