Jeremy Piven lost a role in a Broadway show to mercury poisoning, but he won the contract dispute over his abrupt departure. Months after Piven was forced to abandon his role in 'Speed-the-Plow,' a professional arbiter has ruled Piven did not his breach his contract with the Broadway producers for leaving the revival of the David Mamet play.

In December, Piven's doctor said the actor was suffering from mercury poisoning after eating too much fish.

Piven says in a statement that he's pleased with the outcome and says he's been vindicated.
