O’Melveny’s Representation of Qualia in “Nash Bridges” Case Noted in Daily Journal

July 26, 2012 The Daily Journal’s July 26, 2012, article “Don Johnson, Rysher Set for Rematch in ‘Nash Bridges’ Appeal” reports on a recent appeal by the funders of the television show “Nash Bridges” of a jury verdict that found Don Johnson productions was owed half the show’s profits due to a contract clause giving the company copyright after three seasons. According to the article, Rysher argued in its opening brief that Johnson’s claims should have been barred by a statute of limitations. Qualia and 2929 Entertainment LLC, which owned Rysher at different times, argued that any judgment should be Rysher’s liability, the Daily Journal reported.


The article noted that O’Melveny & Myers LLP partner Charles Diamond is representing Qualia, which owned and managed defendant Rysher Entertainment at different times during the show’s production.

Diamond is a member of O'Melveny's Business Litigation and Trial Practice and resides in the Firm's Century City office.

The case is Don Johnson Prods. Inc. v. Rysher Entertainment, LLC B227304 (Cal. App. 2nd Dist. Feb. 16, 2011).
