For any lawyers here, does Charlie Sheen have a legitimate case against Warner Brothers?
I had been ignoring all the celebrity brouhaha surrounding Charlie Sheen until he brought his lawsuit. That caught my attention. I did some Web searching and found statements that merely insulting his show’s producer, Chuck Lorre, is not sufficient grounds for dismissal. I would like to focus on that point. Let’s suppose that Sheen’s personal behavior off the set did not affect his ability to perform on the set.
I would argue in favor of Sheen’s dismissal on two grounds. Firstly, by making unfavorable comments about anything involving his job, he creates a tension with those he works with that can impair everyone’s ability to get the job done. Secondly, publicly making disparaging remarks and acting like a jerk can affect the image maintained by the customers (viewers and advertisers). I can use myself as a case in point. I have watched Two And A Half Men in the past. I would not do so again.
