LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles judge’s ruling has more than doubled Don Johnson’s jury award for profits from the TV series ‘Nash Bridges‘ to more than $51 million.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Stern ruled that the actor is due more than $28 million in interest from the show.

The ruling comes two months after a jury determined that Johnson, who owned half the copyright to the series, was owed $23.2 million in profits.

‘Nash Bridges’ aired for six seasons on CBS. Johnson sued three firms, including Rysher Entertainment, in February 2009 to recoup profits he claimed were withheld.

Rysher’s attorney, Bart H. Williams, did not immediately return a message seeking comment Wednesday. He has said the initial jury verdict would be appealed.
