Don Johnson Lawsuit: Actor Wins $19 Million From ‘Nash Bridges' Contract

It's a good day to be Don Johnson.

The 63-year-old was awarded $19 million in his lawsuit over revenue from the series "Nash Bridges," which ran from 1996 until 2001, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

A jury first awarded the actor $23.2 million in 2010, and then the judge awarded $28.5 million in interest, bringing the total to more than $50 million, but the award was cut down to $15 million when the production company appealed last October, according to Variety.

Johnson filed to appeal the last decision, but it appears the fight is finally over, as THR reports that court papers submitted to the Los Angeles Superior Court reveal that suit had been settled and Rysher had wired nearly $19 million to Johnson's production company at the end of January.
