Johnson Given The Ok To Take Cash And Copyright Case To Trial

Former MIAMI VICE star DON JOHNSON has been given the go-ahead to face off with movie bosses who he alleges underpaid him for his work on TV show NASH BRIDGES.
Johnson, who played a San Francisco, California police detective in the late 1990s series, insists he's entitled to half the show's profits - because he co-owns the copyright.
His suit suggests the series earned more than $300 million (£187.5 million) in revenues and more than $150 million (£93.75 million) from syndication.
In court in Los Angeles on Tuesday (11May10), Judge Michael L. Stern denied a motion by lawyers for Rysher Entertainment Inc. to dismiss the case and ruled a jury should decide whether Rysher breached its contract with Johnson.
The trial will begin on 21 June (10).
