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.”

Ive been keeping track of this case with nicollette sherdan and marc slap face cherry,Hope he does not hit ericka cane that way lol,oops I meant susan lucci,anyway to make a long story short,Dont think we will ever know the truth if she got smacked or not ,lets face it no guy is going to hit a woman where there will be witnesses or the other way around,so this is a he said she said situation, case over ,and I like nicollette sherdan ,but without any proof as I said its done,I could be wrong should still go to a jury everyone should have there day in court .so in judge judys words , you dont talk back and get the hell out of my court room and this case seems to be going that way,unless we get a last minute perry mason moment and have another surprise witness.I love these court room things.

I am confused. WHY would the judge do this when Marc Cherry already admitted to hitting her?

‘The Masked Singer’ Runner-up, Ex- AMC’s Jesse McCartney, Recalls Working With David Canary

If you caught the finale of The Masked Singer this week, you know that “The Turtle” was revealed to be none other than former All My Children star and recording artist, Jesse McCartney.

While McCartney came in as the runner-up, losing out to Kandi Burress, he spoke to Digital Journal about his latest single, “Friends’ and recalled his time working with the one and only David Canary (Ex-Stuart/Adam) on the now defunct ABC daytime drama series.

As a young JR Chandler from 1998-2001, that put him sharing on-screen time with Canary, who played his father.  Jesse remembers all of the lines of dialogue thrown at him at a young age was not fun.

When speaking of his time with Canary, McCartney shared: “He was one of the sweetest guys on the planet and he was such a kind soul. He played my father, Adam Chandler, and not only was he the star of the show but he played his own twin brother, Stuart. He had double the lines of any character on the show, and in my three years on the show, he never messed up a line even once. There was a time when David helped me when I was having a moment and I struggled with remembering my lines, so as a result, the soap world for me is very sentimental.”
