Round 1 In 'Men' Lawsuit

Goes to Warner Bros.

6/15/2011 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen didnt' get what he wanted from the judge in his "Two and a Half Men" lawsuit against Warner Bros., because a judge would not rule that he's entitled to a public court trial.  But Charlie may get a second bite of the apple.

Charlie is suing Warner Bros. for $100,000,000 claiming the studio had no right to 86 him from the show.

Charlie wanted the judge to rule the arbitration clause in his contract -- which says the dispute would be handled privately, behind closed doors -- is invalid.  But the judge said the arbitration agreement is indeed valid, but left it to the arbitrator to decide if the matter would be resolved in private or in a public courtroom.  So Charlie can press his request for a public trial to the arbitrator.

A Warner Bros. rep tells TMZ, "We're very gratified by the court's ruling enforcing the parties' arbitration agreement."

Charlie Sheen will start to disappear from the headlines now as it is all private arbitration. The sitcom news at another network sounds completely bogus.

adios Charlie Sheen!

It's not like we don't know the issues, and I suspect Charlie's gonna tell us what's going on anyway, so WB should've just let the whole thing play out in the public arena.

Damn. It's too bad Charlie won't have to go to court. I was looking forward to hearing him ask the judge if he could lean on something so he could get through his testimony.

Charlie is going to fade away. A bleep on the pop culture radar. A "Where Are They Now?" segment.
