Nicollette Sheridan - Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Winter 2016 Event held at Tournament House in Pasadena at Tournament House - Los Angeles, California, United States - Saturday 9th January 2016
Actress Nicollette Sheridan Has Been Given Permission To File A New Complaint In Her Long-running Legal Battle Over Her Departure From Desperate Housewives.
Sheridan launched a lawsuit against show bosses in 2010 claiming she was written out of the comedy/drama in 2009 because she complained about creator MARC CHERRY hitting her on the head.
The case against ABC/Touchstone entertainment bosses went to trial in 2012, but the jury could not reach a majority verdict and it was declared a mistrial. Sheridan has been pushing for a new trial ever since, but she has faced a number of legal obstacles, including Judge Michael Stern denying her new court proceedings in 2013.
Sheridan has now been given fresh hope after a three justice panel of the 2nd District Court of Appeal reached a unanimous opinion overturning Stern's ruling against a retrial due to changes in the California Labor Code.

An appellate court has overturned a Los Angeles Superior Court judge's decision to allow the retrial based on Sheridan's allegations that Cherry assaulted her and ABC bosses wrongfully fired her from the show.
The actress was given hope in January (14) when judge Michael Stern reversed his November (13) judgment that the case would be dismissed, but a three-person Court of Appeal panel has insisted his latest decision was invalid.

The actress sued bosses at ABC and Touchstone and Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry in 2010, claiming she was unfairly dismissed from the show after complaining about an altercation with the writer, during which he allegedly struck her.
After a drawn-out legal battle in 2012, a jury failed to agree on a verdict and a Los Angeles judge declared a mistrial.
Nicollette Sheridan has been denied an appeal over her sacking from ABC's Desperate Housewives, meaning the case it now all but dead. The California Supreme Court issued the brief ruling on Friday (November 16, 2012), with the court's chief justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye writing, "The petition for review is denied.The request for an order requesting depublication of the opinion is denied," according to the Hollywood Reporter.
It's a killer blow to Sheridan, whose two-and-a-half-year legal saga has concerned her acrimonious exit from Desperate Housewives. She first sued ABC Studios and show creator MARC CHERRY for $20 million in April 2010, claiming she was fired from the show after complaining about being hit in the head by Cherry during an argument on-set. Earlier this year, a jury failed to reach a verdict in the high profile trial. Sheridan initially asked for a rehearing and was denied, and has now had the same word back from the state Supreme Court. It's likely that the case will be referred back to the court of appeal, which will direct the trial court to allow Sheridan to proceed with a claim that her exit from Desperate Housewives violates the state's labor code. ABC lawyer Adam Levin declined to comment the latest ruling.
Since her departure from the show, Sheridan has appeared in a couple of television moves, as well as the comedy Jewtopia with Jennifer Love Hewitt and Peter Stormare.

Actress Eva Longoria admits she is devastated by the end of 'Desperate Housewives'.
The petite actress - who has played feisty latina Gabriella Solis on the hit TV show since 2004 - has revealed she was extremely upset about the Emmy award-winning drama coming to an end.
Speaking to GLAMOUR magazine after wrapping the last ever episode, Eva said: ''I don't have a lot of energy right now because I was bawling my eyes out last night for hours after shooting.

There has been much talk over recent days, of the alleged rift between Teri Hatcher and the other female leads in Desperate Housewives. Hatcher was absent from the wrap party and she also didn't show up at the public bash in Hollywood, thrown as a final farewell to the long-running show. Rumors have well and truly surfaced about an apparent feud between Hatcher and her fellow cast members but Eva Longoria denied the claims during a recent appearance on David Letterman's chat show.

Desperate Housewives may be one of the most popular shows on TV but the catty behaviour that you often see on screen seems to have been carrying on whilst the cameras stop rolling. Nicoleltte Sheridan's court case against the show's producers, ABC and its henchman, Marc Cherry is still on-going. And now, the media's attention has turned to the rift between Teri Hatcher and, well, pretty much the rest of the female leads in the show.
Hatcher was notably absent from the show's wrap party - a pretty big omission, given that she has been a part of the show since it began in 2004. Not only that, but she didn't turn up to the more public final farewell party at W Hotel in Hollywood last week. Celebuzz also revealed that the 'girls' (i.e. Eva Longoria, MARCIA CROSS, Felicity Huffman and Vanessa Williams. all of the main ones except Teri) clubbed together to buy luggage gifts for the crew as a parting present. "The girls don't get along with Teri so they organized this and left her out," a source told Celebuzz.

Actress Nicollette Sheridan has been dealt a huge blow in her ongoing lawsuit against Desperate Housewives bosses and series creator MARC CHERRY - a Los Angeles judge has dismissed the battery allegations at the centre of her claim for damages.
Sheridan filed suit in 2010, alleging she was fired from the show after she complained to ABC network executives about an on-set incident with Cherry in 2008, which ended with the writer/producer hitting her on the head to demonstrate an action in a scene.
Testifying in court last week (05Mar12) Cherry confessed he had felt awful about striking Sheridan, but explained that he was just acting out what he wanted for a particular shot. He also told the jury that the decision to kill off her character Edie Britt had been made months before the incident.
On Tuesday (13Mar12), Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White issued a direct ruling to dismiss the battery claim due to a lack of evidence. The verdict means Cherry is no longer a defendant, and the case is now solely between Sheridan and Abc network bosses.
Actor James Denton felt "really uncomfortable" testifying in court against his former Desperate Housewives co-star Nicollette Sheridan and he is happy that what he said on the witness stand neither "helped or hurt" either side in the ongoing trial.
Sheridan claims she was fired after complaining to network executives about an incident she'd had with series creator Marc Cherry in 2008, which ended with the writer/producer hitting the actress on the head to demonstrate an action in a scene.
Denton took the stand in the wrongful dismissal trial on Thursday (08Mar12) and told the court that he wasn't at all surprised when he heard Sheridan's character Edie Britt would be axed, stating, "People get killed off so often."
The actor, who plays Teri Hatcher's onscreen husband Mike Delfino on the show, was also expected to recall his own onset experience with Cherry's "physical" style of directing, but he never got the chance - and Denton admits he's glad his testimony "wasn't much help" to the defence or the plaintiff.

Actress Nicollette Sheridan's ongoing wrongful dismissal trial has thrown up a major upcoming plot twist - James Denton's character, Mike Delfino, will be killed off in the latest episode, which airs in America on Sunday (11Mar12).
Producer George Perkins let the spoiler slip during testimony on Thursday afternoon (08Mar12) as he explained to the court that Sheridan's Edie Britt is not the most high-profile character to be killed off.
Perkins then went on to explain that Delfino would meet a grisly end this weekend as the series begins its final weeks.
Ironically, Denton was also in court on Thursday and testified that he was far from shocked when he heard Sheridan's character would be axed, stating, "People get killed off so often."
