Judge Rules ‘Housewives’ Didn’t Wrongfully Fire Nicolette Sheridan

A judge has ruled in the case of Nicolette Sheridan vs. ABC, proclaiming that she was not wrongfully terminated from ‘Desperate Housewives.

The decision was ruled by an appeals court on Thursday, however the actress should still be allowed to pursue claims that she was retaliated against for complaining that the show’s creator, Marc Cherry, struck her during an altercation.

A three-justice panel of the 2nd District Court of Appeal agreed with the attorneys for ABC that Sheridan left the show when her contract was not renewed following the fifth season, and prohibited the actress from receiving a new trial based on wrongful termination.

The court wrote in a ten page filing, “Sheridan cannot pursue a cause of action for wrongful termination in violation of public policy because, contrary to what she claims, she was not fired, discharged or terminated.”
