Nicollette Sheridan's wrongful termination suit against Desperate Housewives has been dealt what is probably a fatal blow.

A Los Angeles jury deadlocked in March over her $4 million suit on whether the former Housewives actress was owed about $4 million from Touchstone Television/ABC. A new trial was set for Sept. 10.

But on Friday, an appeals court ruled there would be no retrial because Touchstone/ABC should have won the case, The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting.

In a writ of mandate, the appeals court overturned the trial judge's denial of Touchstone's motion for a directed verdict.  The court also set an August 9 date for the trial judge to justify why the case should move forward to a retrial.

Sheridan's legal options aren't completely dead but they are seriously wounded.
