Charlie Sheen Judge Allows Cameras in Courtroom
The judge overseeing Charlie Sheen's $100 million lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre is allowing media to film the proceedings.
In a ruling Tuesday morning, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Allan Goodman told lawyers for the parties that he would allow a single video camera to be present during the case.
Warner Bros and Lorre had opposed the requests from several media organizations. Sheen's attorneys had no objection.
"This is a public forum," Goodman told the courtroom, about half filled with journalists.
Lawyers for Sheen, Warners and Lorre are in court Tuesday morning arguing over whether the dispute over Sheen's firing from Men will be public or proceed in a private arbitration.
