Nicollette Sheridan sues Desperate Housewives Production Channel ABC for $20 Million

She has just won the right to a retrial. Nicollette Sheridan had a gripe with Marc Cherry, the producer. She claimed she was hit on the head during an argument with him. 

Furthermore, when her services were no longer needed by the show’s producers, she felt even angrier. Although Desperate Housewives has been off the air for two years or so, its creators are now facing the wrath of Nicollette. 

A judge has allowed the blonde actress to sue them and she is all set to get revenge for the wrongs she feels have been done to her ego. The very first time the trial took place, it ended in a hung jury. 

The lady protested yet again when she brought out the fact that she was hit on the head by a member of the series. Although the judge said that she should have told them that beforehand, a retrial lies in the future. 

Meanwhile, the studios are saying that she was not fired but instead her contract was not extended. Whatever the case, the whole matter has acquired the status of a labor lawsuit by now. 

And although the team has appealed to a higher court for an overturning of the lawsuit, it looks like Nicollette will be able to get her Shakespearian pound of flesh.
