Member Jack Wheat has received a spotlight feature in Louisville Business First following his recent appearance on the History Channel's The Toys That Built America. Mr. Wheat was interviewed for an episode about the Cabbage Patch Kids due to his role in an intellectual property suit involving the toys.
As a law student and young lawyer in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Mr. Wheat provided legal assistance and representation to the late Martha Nelson Thomas, the Kentucky artist who created the soft sculpture "Doll Babies" that preceded Cabbage Patch Kids, in an intellectual property suit regarding the provenance of the popular toys.
Earlier this year, Mr. Wheat appeared in Billion Dollar Babies: The True Story of the Cabbage Patch Kids, a documentary that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
