Here’s a mildly interesting Hollywood legal wrinkle: Charlie Sheen’s litigator Marty Singer is going to challenge the standard arbitration clause in Warner Bros TV contracts. He went to court today and received a sped-up April 19th hearing date for Charlie’s motion to stay the JAMS arbitration because the off-the-hook actor wants to proceed with his own lawsuit. (And presumably spill embarrassing stuff that the studio and Two And A Half Men executive producer Chuck Lorre don’t want public.) Singer told today’s courtroom that he plans to depose Warner Bros legal eagle Jody Zucker on the issue of whether Sheen’s arbitration clause was forced down Charlie’s throat. I checked, and it is standard to Warner Bros TV contracts to cut down on costly litigation and speed things up. Hard to imagine this dog will hunt.
