SheenArbitration230.jpgAn LA judge ruled Wednesday that Charlie Sheen's multi-million dollar lawsuits will not go to trial.

Charlie Sheen vs. Warner Bros. TV and Charlie Sheen Vs. Two And A Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre must be settled in arbitration (outside of court), the judge said. Warner Bros. had argued that Sheen's $100 million lawsuit against it over his firing from Two And A Half Men had to be handled in arbitration per the actor's contract.

Sheen's attorney, Marty Singer, had demanded a public trial. Sheen was hoping to get the public on his side through information that came out in the trial. The case certainly would have been a media circus, especially since approval had been given for video cameras inside the courtroom.
