Nielsen, Bubba Going To Mediation


Bubba ArmyNielsen and Bubba the Love Sponge are headed toward mediation.

But that doesn’t mean their case won’t go to trial.

According to a court filing, F. Dennis Alvarez of Tampa has been selected to help the parties mediate their dueling lawsuits.

They are to meet with him July 5.

Nielsen sued Bubba for $1 million last October for alleged ratings tampering; he countersued.

A trial is still set for January 2017.
