Court trims verdict over 'Nash Bridges' profits
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A divided appellate court upheld Don Johnson's multimillion jury award over profits from the series "Nash Bridges" but cut its amount by more than $8 million on Monday.
The California 2nd District Court of Appeal panel voted 2-1 to uphold a verdict that determined the actor was owed millions from the hit series, but cut its amount from $23.2 million down to $15 million. The actor is still eligible to recoup interest on the award, which was originally calculated at more than $28 million.
The justices determined that jurors erred when they took into account that Johnson might have earned interest payments while fighting the case, which ended in 2010 with the multimillion verdict. The panel decided to add 5 percent interest to the original $15 million amount they agreed Johnson should receive, according to the opinion released Monday.
