Actor Don Johnson Wins $23.2 Million From “Nash Bridges” TV Show Lawsuit

| by Stupid Celebrities

Don Johnson has been awarded $23.2 million in his lawsuit against television show “Nash Bridges.” 

The Miami Vice star, 60, filed legal papers in 2009 saying he owned 50% copyright and that NBC owed him for the series, that ran from 1996-2001.

Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

The producers, Rysher Entertainment, claimed they had lost money on the show, so that is why Don hadn’t been paid.

Johnson made a statement saying he was “so pleased” the jury agreed with him. “It was my idea and I owned the rights in the first place,” he added.

“I have waited for more than 10 years for Rysher to recognize me as the co-owner of the Nash Bridges series.”

Don Johnson played the role of a police inspector in “Nash Bridges," which generated $325m including $150m from worldwide syndication.

Johnson’s lawyer, Mark Holscher, said his client could make an addition $25m in the future because the show was still shown in 45 countries.

Holscher said the case had been a success “not just on a financial level but on a personal level – it was vindication that he was getting credit for his ideas”.
