Nicollette Sheridan is innocent. The movie siren won a year long legal battle against her former manager, Rob Lee, who sued her for firing him.

Lee filed a lawsuit back on June 8, 2006 claimed Sheridan hired him when her career "consisted primarily of occasional appearances on television." Lee, furthermore, claimed he persuaded the actress to audition for the hit TV series "Desperate Housewives," and stopped her from abandoning a second audition.

Sheridan then becomes a worldwide name as soon as the show becomes a hit. However, the actress who initially committed to pay Lee 10 percent of her gross income, then fired him in November 2004 and she never gave him his 10 percent fee.

In fact, Sheridan could now feel relieved and all smile as the California State Labor Commission has on earlier this month ruled Lee wasn't properly licensed when he helped negotiate Sheridan's "Desperate Housewives" contract and so he wasn't entitled to a fee.
