Nicollette Sheridan's 'Desperate Housewives' case ends in mistrial

London, Tue, 20 Mar 2012 ANI

London, Mar 20 (ANI): A mistrial has been declared in the case of Nicollette Sheridan, who sued her former bosses for killing off her character in the show.


The jury could not agree on her claims against ABC, which airs the hit show 'Desperate Housewives'.


The 48-year-old actress said that its creator, Marc Cherry, axed her character because she complained that he hit her in the head during an on-set dispute in September 2008.


Cherry said that Sheridan exaggerated the incident and that he decided to kill off her character, "Edie Britt" months earlier.


She was seeking some 6 million dollars from her former employers.


Sheridan walked out of the Los Angeles court after Monday's decision without speaking to journalists, the BBC reported.


Her lawyer said he would retry the case. Cherry was not in court.


The jury first reported problems coming to a vote on Thursday.


It was deadlocked 8-4 in favour of Sheridan, however, a minimum 9-3 split in one party's favour was required.


The jurors continued to deliberate until Monday, when Judge Elizabeth Allen White excused the panel. (ANI)
