Entertainment lawyers expect to see Charlie Sheen and his former television bosses in court as they continue to spar in public over last week’s decision to suspend filming of “Two and a Half Men.” Most networks prefer to work out any problems with stars behind the scenes rather than in court.

“Celebrities like Sheen are so integral, you have to work it out,” said Darrell D. Miller. He added that Sheen’s bad-boy image often was used by the show’s creators as inspiration for plotlines. “It’s hard to say you’re immoral for doing the things we’re profiting from in the show,” Miller said.
