Charlie Sheen - No Gag Order For Charlie Sheen Court Case - Report
Charlie Sheen has won his latest legal battle with the producers of the show he was fired from earlier this year (11) - a Los Angeles judge has denied show creator Chuck Lorre's request for a gag order, according to a U.S. report.
Sheen filed a $100 million (Gbp62.5 million) lawsuit against Lorre in March (11), demanding the pay he would have earned from the eight episodes producers cancelled at the end of February (11), citing the actor's erratic behaviour.
Lorre and his Warner Bros. team later submitted a motion to keep the details of the case under wraps with a broad gag order, in order to ensure a smooth arbitration. However, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Justice Richard Neal has rejected Lorre's plea.
Per the judge's ruling, Sheen will now be allowed to publicly discuss the trial with reporters, as well as touch upon the topic during his upcoming Comedy Central Roast in September (11), as long as he doesn't disclose details considered "sensitive and proprietary".
