Nicollette Sheridan - Nicollette Sheridan Jury Deadlocked

Jurors in actress Nicollette Sheridan's ongoing wrongful dismissal case against Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry are struggling to reach a verdict.
Sheridan maintains she was fired after complaining to TV network executives about the actions of Cherry. She accused the writer/producer of striking her after she asked him to write her a line for the end of a scene.
Cherry testified last week (ends09Mar12) that he was merely demonstrating an action he wanted the actress to carry out - and the incident had nothing to do with her firing, explaining he had decided to kill off her character, Edie Britt, months before.
The twelve person jury began deliberating on Wednesday (14Mar12), but when they couldn't reach a verdict on Thursday the judge sent them home to give them more time.
Sheridan's lawyer Mark Baute says, "I'm sensing some frustration and polarisation. It's very early for a jury to come back and say, 'We're having trouble deliberating'."
Baute believes the "majority of jurors are in Nicollette's favour", but the court requires nine of the twelve jury to reach an agreement.
Sheridan is seeking $5.7 million (£3.5 million) in damages from Cherry and the show's network bosses Abc.
