Charlie Sheen's Legal Battle With Warner Bros. Sent To Arbitration

Charlie Sheen has suffered a setback in his legal battle with Warner Bros. Television and 'Two and a Half Men' executive producer Chuck Lorre.

Private resolution company JAMS has determined that the actor's $100 million lawsuit should be sent to a third-party arbitrator and not to a judge and jury as Sheen was hoping.

Sheen's lawyer Marty Singer is obviously not happy with the decision and is challenging the ruling, according to THR.

"JAMS is wrong," Singer says. "This case involves many different parties and different issues, and it should not be subject to an arbitration agreement between Charlie Sheen and Warner Bros."

"Our lawsuit involves claims over the entire cast and crew, and there is no right to arbitrate with them... we still feel we will prevail because the facts and law are 100 percent in our favor."

"I can understand why Chuck Lorre wants to keep this in a secret tribunal. When the facts come out they will show that he and Warner Bros. had absolutely no basis to terminate my client."

Singer is doing what he can to get JAMS to reconsider, telling them that Sheen's contract does not allow for arbitration.

But if this doesn't change, it could be a huge setback for the actor since the studio would have been more likely to settle if there was a chance its financial information and dirty laundry may be aired in public.

Lawyers for Warners and Lorre will now file a motion for arbitration, requesting that the judge relinquish control of the case.
