Disney Fraud

A Florida jury today ordered Walt Disney to pay $240 million in damages to two businessmen who alleged the company stole their idea for a sports complex. Disney denied using anyone else's idea for the Wide World of Sports complex at Walt Disney World in Orlando. But the six-member jury found the company guilty of fraud, theft of trade secrets and breaking a confidential relationship. NPR's Phillip Davis reports.
