Nicollette Sheridan Trial Ruled a Mistrial
The lawsuit by Nicollette Sheridan against Desperate Housewives was ruled a mistrial. INSIDE EDITION has the breaking news.
The judge has declared a mistrial in Nicollette Sheridan's lawsuit against Desperate Housewives.
The jury was released after they reported they were completely deadlocked. They had been deliberating since last Wednesday.
Sheridan's attorney Mark Baute said, "Strong as an ox and pretty as a princess."
ABC attorney Adam Levin said, "The jury, as you know, has now hung. The claim will soon be re-tried. We're anxious to move forward with that trial and we're confident that we'll prevail."
The jury vote was 8 to 4 in Sheridan's favor, but that's one vote short of the 9 needed for her to win the civil lawsuit. Two jurors who voted for Sheridan's favor spoke to reporters:
A reporter asked, "Was there a cover up by ABC, do you think?"
"I'm not going to say cover up. That's a very strong word. But I just know that it wasn't handled in the way that it should have been handled," said the juror.
Sheridan claimed she was wrongfully fired from Desperate Housewives in retaliation for complaining that executive producer Marc Cherry slapped her during a rehearsal.
The juror had this to say to Sheridan: "Good luck in her endeavors in whatever she decides to do."
