Abc - No Deal In Nicollette Sheridan Trial

The lawyer representing Abc Tv executives in Nicollette Sheridan's wrongful termination trial has ruled out striking a deal with the former Desperate Housewives star.
The jury in the case is deadlocked and Judge Elizabeth Allen White sent the jurors home on Friday (16Mar12) urging them to think about the case over the weekend and continue their deliberations on Monday (19Mar12).
She said she'd declare a mistrial if a verdict in the case between Sheridan and Abc Tv bosses couldn't be reached.
Judge White also asked the two sides to talk, prompting legal experts to suggest a settlement to end the trial could be imminent - but Abc's lead attorney, Adam Levin, insists that isn't going to happen.
He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "It went nowhere."
Sheridan is suing Abc bosses for $6 million (£3.75 million), claiming they fired her from Desperate Housewives after she complained to them about an altercation with series creator Marc Cherry, alleging he struck her during a heated encounter on set.
Judge White dismissed a battery charge against Cherry at the beginning of the week (12Mar12).
But the actress' lawyer Mark Baute is confident she'll win the wrongful dismissal case when the jury returns on Monday: "We believe the vote is eight-to-four in our favour."
If that's the case, Sheridan needs only one juror to change his or her mind over the weekend - and she'll be declared the winner of the trial.
If the judge declares a mistrial, Baute is ready to present his case again, adding, "One hundred per cent, we will do it again. We have now seen everything they've (defence team) got. Every little trick."
