Sushi-Gate Is Over -- Piven Off the Hook

8/27/2009 5:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jeremy PivenAn arbiter has finally ruled in the never-ending saga that was Sushi-Gate -- and agreed that Jeremy Piven did not violate his contract when he bailed on his Broadway play.

In case you forgot -- Piven dropped out of "Speed the Plow" after he was diagnosed with "mercury poisoning," which he claims was caused by eating too much raw fish.

Producers thought it was just plain fishy and filed a grievance.

Lesson here: Ari Gold always wins.

Love him and love his character Ari Gold! Best character on t.v. by far. He is the most convincing actor ever!

It's usually tough to side with a blowhard like Piven, but I saw video of him shortly after he bailed out of the play and the guy's face was lime green. Either he was sick or his make-up artist was going for a zombie motif.

Glad to hear it! I have heavy metal poisoning and it knocks you on your ass - can be completely dehabilitating - and even deadly.

I hope you counter sue the SOB's for wasting your time, effort and money defending a baseless lawsuit.
