LOS ANGELES (AP) - A California appeals court has upheld Don Johnson's jury award over profits from the series "Nash Bridges" but significantly reduced the amount the actor can receive.

A 2nd District Court of Appeal panel voted to uphold a verdict that the actor was owed profits from the hit series, but cut the amount from $23.2 million down to $15 million.

The court also limited the amount of interest the actor is eligible to receive, erasing an additional award of more than $28 million.

Johnson's original 2010 verdict was appealed by the series' producers and financiers.

One justice agreed with the companies that Johnson's verdict should be overturned because his claims were barred by the statute of limitations, but two justices sided with the actor.

"Nash Bridges" aired for six seasons on CBS.
