Charlie Sheen was dealt an early setback today in the lawsuit over his firing from CBS hit “Two and a Half Men,” TMZ.com reported. Sheen had been seeking a public trial, but a judge has ruled that the case will take place in private.
Sheen is suing the show’s producer, Warner Bros., for $100 million. The judge upheld an arbitration agreement that apparently requires the litigation to be done behind closed doors.
Said a Warner Bros. representative: "We’re very gratified by the court’s ruling enforcing the parties’ arbitration agreement."
