NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Actor Corbin Bernsen's breach of contract lawsuit against a Virginia Beach company is going to trial.
Jury selection began Wednesday morning in U.S. District Court in Norfolk.
Bernsen told a local newspaper that his lawsuit isn't about money. It's about his reputation.
Bernsen's lawsuit claims Innovative Legal Marketing, LLC cancelled his $1 million, five-year contract in June 2011. The company hired Bersen in 2009 to do promotional work.
A countersuit filed by the company claims Bernsen breached the contract. The countersuit says he discussed his premarital sex life and drug use publicly, disparaged lawyers in a TV sketch and was injured in a bar fight.
Bernsen's lawsuit seeks $668,000. The company says he owes it $600,000.
