It was anything but a #winning moment today for the Charlie Sheen legal team, after a Los Angeles judge denied a request that would have halted arbitration in Sheen’s lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre.

Sheen’s team had filed a request for a temporary restraining order against JAMS, the arbitration firm in charge of handling the contract dispute, claiming their client wants his day in court, according to the Los Angeles Times. With that request now denied, his counsel will reportedly continue their quest and take the matter up with the original judge assigned to the $100-million lawsuit. Meanwhile, Warner Bros. claims the actor’s contract calls for arbitration to resolve disputes.

Sheen filed the lawsuit March 10 following several tumultuous weeks of back-and-forth between Sheen and his now former employers.

The suit, which Sheen filed on behalf of himself and the Two and a Half Men crew, claimed Lorre and the studio “conspire[d]” to “attribute the suspension of the series and termination of Mr. Sheen’s contract on Mr. Sheen’s alleged statements, conduct, and condition, despite the fact that Mr. Sheen is in compliance with his contract.” Lorre’s lawyer later called the allegations “fantasy.”

    Goodluck Charlie, I still like you as an actor. Hope you can return in another show.

    The arbitrators are paid by the corporations and if they rule against them they won’t be hired again. That’s why Charlie wants a court trial with the rules of evidence.

    I have been surfing on-line greater than three hours nowadays, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the net will likely be much more helpful than ever before.
