Ruling doubles Nash Bridges award
A court ruling has more than doubled Don Johnson's jury award for profits from the TV series Nash Bridges to more than 51 million dollars.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Stern ruled that the actor is due more than 28 million dollars in interest from the show.
The ruling comes two months after a jury determined that Johnson, who owned half the copyright to the series, was owed 23.2 million in profits.
Nash Bridges aired for six seasons on CBS. Johnson sued three firms, including Rysher Entertainment, in February 2009 to recoup profits he claimed were withheld.
Rysher's lawyer, Bart H Williams, has not yet made a comment on the ruling. He had said the initial jury verdict would be appealed.
