Desperate Housewives Drama! Judge Throws Out Battery Charge in Nicollette Sheridan case against Marc Cherry!

Nicollette Sheridan did not get her way with this part of her legal case against Desperate Housewives, creator, Marc Cherry! Sheridan, a former co-star on the ABC drama, filed a wrongful termination and battery lawsuit against Cherry and Touchstone Productions.  Sheridan alleged Cherry hit her on the head during a 2008 rehearsal and is suing for $6 million.  However, L.A. Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White issued a directed verdict dismissing the battery claim in the case, meaning Cherry — whom Sheridan says struck her in the head on the set of the show in September 2008 — is no longer a defendant.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Sheridan’s attorneys clearly were unhappy about the judge’s action, but lead lawyer Mark Baute said the move doesn’t really matter. The jury still will be asked to rule on the question of whether ABC’s decision to kill off Sheridan’s Edie Britt character was retaliation that rises to the level of wrongful termination.
The judge said Sheridan’s claims did not meet the standard to proof for battery. Cherry hit Sheridan during a rehearsal on Sept. 24, 2008, in an altercation that was described by both parties during testimony in the two-week trial.

Cherry appeared in the hall outside the courtroom after the ruling and spoke to the media for the first time, making only a brief statement: “Obviously I’m thrilled by the judge’s decision. But I’m going to withhold further comment until this matter is resolved completely.”

So what do you think of the charges being dropped against Cherry? Let us know!

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.
