The two-week hearing in Beverly Hills has often been a psychological drama masquerading as a lawsuit, with ample displays of animosity. For Disney, and especially for chief executive Michael Eisner, it's a case that cannot be won in terms of image. It will forever be in the record that Eisner was accused of describing his former protege as 'the end of my pom-pom' Eisner himself, of course, being the cheerleader and 'my retriever'; and, most indelibly, of saying: 'I think I hate that little midget. When pressed to verify that he said those words, Eisner warned that the line of questioning was 'ill-advised' and 'not in your client's best interest or mine, but particularly your client'. The biggest controversy has been over whether to base Katzenberg's settlement on merchandise sold by Disney as opposed to licensed by it. But also in dispute are income from Club Disney, income from Toy Story sequels, and whether Katzenberg is entitled to a payment, known as an imputed royalty, from the use of characters such as Ariel from The Little Mermaid on Disney's website.

This led her to have repeat nightmares about it and an eventual miscarriage. Loading How afraid are you? Thank you for voting You have already voted on this poll!
Benidorm Pub Slammed For 'Midget' Shows
A British pub in Benidorm is being investigated for hate crimes after the boozer started advertising 'midget strippers' for hire to UK tourists. A spokesperson for the group claimed the pub was offering customers the opportunity to rent people with dwarfism, with posters put up at the entrance to the bar and Facebook. A photograph of the poster for the show, titled 'The Midget' - a derogatory term used for people with dwarfism - shows the performer dressed in different costumes, including that of Charlie Chaplin and Borat.
