No public trial for Charlie Sheen in ‘Two And A Half Men’ lawsuit
Washington: Former ‘Two And A Half Men’ actor Charlie Sheen has suffered a legal setback when a Los Angeles judge denied his request for a public trial for his lawsuit with the show’s bosses.
Sheen had filed a 100 million-dollars lawsuit against show creator Chuck Lorre in March (’11) demanding a payment for the eight episodes that producers had called off at the end of February.
According to a news agency, he also filed a motion for the case to be heard in an open courtroom but Superior Court judge Allan Goodman turned down his request.
“We’re very gratified by the court’s ruling enforcing the parties`` arbitration agreement,” Contactmusic quoted Warner Bros. bosses representing Lorre, as saying.
