Nicollette Sheridan's 'Desperate Housewives' case denied an appeal

By Gina DiFalco,

Nicollette Sheridan has been denied an appeal for her firing off of ABC’s Desperate Housewives.

Sheridan’s case against the network and Touchstone Television was denied on Friday by California Supreme Court when the court's chief justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye wrote, "The petition for review is denied.”

She also wrote "The request for an order requesting depublication of the opinion is denied,” The Hollywood Reporter writes.

The lawsuit started in 2010 when Sheridan sued ABC Studios, Touchstone and the show’s creator Marc Cherry, in which she claimed she was fired for complaining that she was hit on the head by Cherry on set. When Cherry’s portion of the lawsuit was dropped, the case against ABC and Touchstone remained.

E! Online reports that case ended in a mistrial and she then requested for a rehearing, which she was denied so she appealed.

The next move for Sheridan and her legal team will likely be taking the case back to the court of appeal to claim her firing was in violation of labor code.
