Deadlocked jury declares mistrial in bombshell NICOLETTE SHERIDAN “Desperate Housewives”trial!
The jury was deadlocked 8-4, in favor of Nicolette, the former star of the hit ABC TV show.
As The ENQUIRER reported previously, Sheridan, 48, filed a lawsuit against the show’s creator, Marc Cherry and ABC, claiming she was fired from the show after telling executives that Cherry had hit her — a charge he has always vehemently denied.
Earlier this week, Judge Helen Bendix dismissed the battery claim, RadarOnline.com reported, citing insufficient evidence.
The jury foreman told the judge via a note explaining they were unable to come to an agreement on a verdict.
"We have viewed many exhibits at length and have not had a change in opinion since early on day one of deliberations. We have had extensive discussions regarding the evidence," the note read.
Judge Helen Bendix gave jurors the morning to try and come to a verdict, but the jury remained at a hopeless impasse and the mistrial was declared.
Sheridan had been seeking $4 million dollars in damages.
