Elly Mae Clampett Barbie doll suit settled


NEW ORLEANS – The actress who played Elly May Clampett on the "The Beverly Hillbillies," toymaker Mattel and CBS Consumer Products have settled a lawsuit in which Donna Douglas claimed the companies didn't get her approval to use her name and likeness for a Barbie doll.
Douglas played the critter-loving tomboy for all nine seasons of the CBS television comedy about a backwoods family that strikes oil and moves to Beverly Hills.
One of her attorneys, Charles von Simson of Buffalo, N.Y., says settlement details are confidential. The U.S. District Court lawsuit filed in Baton Rouge sought at least $75,000.
In earlier filings, CBS (CBS) and Mattel (MAT) said they didn't need Douglas' approval because the network holds exclusive rights to the character.
