Nicollette Sheridan gets slapped around in court—“Desperate Housewives” lawsuit—DENIED
Written by Russ Francis+
Nicollette Sheridan was dealt a major blow in her ongoing legal battle against her former employers at Desperate Housewives. An appeals court shot down her wrongful termination claim against Touchstone Television Productions.
If you recall, Nicollette sued for $20 million in 2010 claiming that she was fired after complaining that series creator Marc Cherry “slapped her during a rehearsal.”
But, he claimed—he was merely giving her ‘stage direction.’
The judge decided yesterday that Nicollette doesn’t have a case; at least a wrongful termination case, ”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. Instead, Touchstone chose only not to exercise its option to renew her contract for the next season.”
Nicollette however, is still able to pursue legal action via a section of the California Labor Code that bars employers from retaliating against employees who complain about ‘unsafe working conditions.’
This makes it sound like Nicollette was working in a coal mine…
The girl simply got bi**h slapped!
