Judge rules Charlie Sheen v. Warner Bros. won’t be a public trial


Los Angeles Superior Court judge Allan Goodman agreed with Warner Bros. Television that the arbitration clause in Sheen’s contract on the show is valid, squashing Sheen’s effort to have his suit thrashed out in a trial/circus.

“We’re very gratified by the court’s ruling enforcing the parties’ arbitration agreement,” WBTV said in a statement.

Sheen was sacked last spring, with Warner Bros. TV citing his strange behavior and public rants against show executive producer Chuck Lorre. The studio and CBS announced last month that Ashton Kutcher had been added to the cast of the hit Monday sitcom.
