Charlie Sheen Not 'Winning' After Judge's Lawsuit Decision

Jeff Vespa/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- A Los Angeles Superior Court judge handed Warner Bros. TV and Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre a legal victory against Charlie Sheen on Wednesday.

Sheen and his lawyer Marty Singer had filed a $100 million lawsuit against WB and Lorre, claiming they had no legal grounds to fire the actor from the hit show, despite his erratic off-screen behavior which morphed into a very public flame war against Lorre.

But TMZ reports Judge Alan Goodman said the case must be settled through arbitration, as stipulated in Sheen's contract, and not with the public trial the actor sought.

"We're very gratified by the court's ruling enforcing the parties' arbitration agreement," Warner Bros. said of the decision.

No official public reaction yet from Sheen's camp.
