In 2010, Johnson filed a lawsuit against Rysher Entertainment, the production company behind Nash Bridges, citing a major discrepancy between his Bridges paycheck and the contract he signed with Rysher in 1995. Under his contract, the actor was entitled to half-ownership of the series as long as it aired at least 66 episodes. When the series ended in 2001,
it had seen 122. When a jury sided with Johnson in 2010, he was awarded more than $50 million in profits and interest. Rysher subsequently appealed the case, and the legal battle continued for nearly three years thereafter. It finally ended in February 2013, when Rysher proposed a settlement of $15 million plus interest, and Johnson agreed.
