Mistrial Declared In Nicollette Sheridan Desperate Housewives Lawsuit

By Jen HegerAssistant Managing Editor of Radar

A mistrial was declared Monday in Nicollette Sheridan‘s wrongful termination lawsuit against ABC, as the jury was deadlocked 8-4, in favor of the former star of the hit television show.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Sheridan, 48, filed a lawsuit against the show’s creator, Marc Cherry and ABC, claiming she was fired from the show after telling executives that Cherry had hit her — a charge he has always vehemently denied. Earlier this week, Judge Helen Bendix dismissed the battery claim against Cherry, citing insufficient evidence.

The jury foreman sent a note to the judge on Friday explaining they were unable to come to an agreement on a verdict.

“We have viewed many exhibits at length and have not had a change in opinion since early on day one of deliberations. We have had extensive discussions regarding the evidence,” the note read.

Judge Helen Bendix gave jurors the morning to try and come to a verdict, but the jury remained at a hopeless impasse and the mistrial was declared.

Sheridan had been seeking $4 million dollars in damages.
