An LA Superior County judge ordered that the actor is due over $28 million in interest plus additional money for unpaid wages. Nash Bridges aired for six seasons on CBS. Back in February of 2009, Johnson sued three companies for profits that he claimed were withheld.

The companies involved in the lawsuit plan to appeal the jury's decision.
