So his circus act won't get an encore? How sad!
Judge Alan Goodman, being of sound mind and rationale, ruled this afternoon that the case of Charlie Sheen vs. Warner Bros TV and Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre will NOT go to trial as Charlie had wanted. The $100 million complaint over his firing will be handled in PRIVATE arbitration. After the ruling was announced, the WB and Lorre's attorney released a statement, saying:
"We're very gratified by the court's ruling enforcing the parties' arbitration agreement…The court made the appropriate ruling in denying Mr. Sheen's request to stay the arbitration in referring his lawsuit against Warner Bros and Chuck Lorre to arbitration as his contract calls for. This matter will now proceed in an orderly fashion as the parties agreed to."
We're sure there are some Charlie Sheen fans out there that are a little disappointed by the ruling, especially his biggest fan - Charlie Sheen!
What say you, Charles??? Was this fair in your
wild wise estimation?
