Nicollette Sheridan Is Back Fighting 'Desperate Housewives' in Court

January 30, 2014 15:43:55 GMT


Nicollette Sheridan is not over on fighting against the unfair termination she allegedly received on "Desperate Housewives". The 50-year-old actress, who played Edie Britt on the ABC series between 2004 and 2009, filed new court papers through her lawyers last week after Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Stern overturned his decision.

Sheridan sued ABC, Touchstone and series creator Marc Cherry back in 2010 for unfair termination from the show. She alleged that she got the boot after complaining that Cherry hit her during an on-set argument. In March 2012, the jury deadlocked, 8-4, and L.A. Superior Court judge declared it a mistrial. Her request for new hearing was turned down by the California Supreme Court in November that year on the reason that she should have filed within six months of the incident.
