'Housewives' case declared mistrial


Though a judge declared a mistrial Monday in “Desperate Housewives” lawsuit, we haven’t heard the last from Nicollette Sheridan. Her attorney said he would retry the case.

Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White excused the jury after it deadlocked 8-4 in Sheridan’s favor.

The actress claimed her role in “Desperate Housewives” was eliminated after she complained that series creator Marc Cherry struck her on the head during a dispute in 2008.

Sheridan was said to be seeking roughly $6 million for the alleged wrongful termination.

Sheridan has struggled since leaving the series. She has not found steady work or an agent in the past two years, her entertainment attorney told jurors.

She left court Monday without speaking to reporters.
