Charlie Sheen waves to fans as he leaves the Chicago Theatre in April 2011.

Tuesday could be an epic #win of a day for Charlie Sheen if both rulings go in his favor.

It was a cross-LA battle between work and family for Sheen today. His infamous $100 million lawsuit against Two and a Half Men producer Chuck Lorre and his custody hearing for twins Bob and Max were both heard in court on Tuesday.

Sheen showed up to the Los Angeles Superior Court to duke it out for custody of his twin sons.  The boys were taken away from his “Sober Valley Lodge” in March and given to his soon-to-be-ex-wife, Brooke Mueller. But with the recent development that Mueller recently checked herself into rehab, Sheen’s chances of getting them back are looking quite good.

In a positive step for the wild-mouthed warlock, Mueller dropped her restraining order against him, which prevented him from even seeing the kids. But the jury is still out on what happens to 2-year-olds Bob and Max when their divorce is finalized in early May.

Across the city in Santa Monica, Sheen’s lawyers kicked off the battle against Warner Bros., the production studio responsible for Two and a Half Men. Sheen’s suing for breach of contract, to the tune of $100 million, for lost pay. But it’s not just his dough that he’s looking out for; it’s the wages of his crew as well, seeking compensation for the eight remaining episodes this season that they were promised.

And like the winner he is, he will still make it back to Washington, D.C. by tonight, in time for the latest leg of his Violent Torpedo of Truth tour.
