According to The Hollywood Reporter, dispute resolution company JAMS has agreed with Warner Bros. and showrunner Chuck Lorre, issuing a letter saying that its own arbitrator has jurisdiction over the case.
In a letter to JAMS, Sheen's lawyer Marty Singer said: "In the unfortunate event that JAMS decides to proceed with the arbitration process, JAMS will force my client to seek judicial relief, which may include enjoining JAMS from proceeding with this matter."
Although Sheen's contract with Warner Bros. reportedly contains a clause stating that any disagreements can be resolved by JAMS, the star had asserted that he has a legal right for the case to be heard in public.
Lorre's attorney Howard Weitzman said that he felt that JAMS had made "the correct decision".
