A judge today (Monday) declared a mistrial in former Desperate Housewives star Nicollete Sheridan’s wrongful termination suit against ABC and Touchstone TV after the jury deadlocked 8-4 in Sheridan’s favor. Each side said it was prepared to go to trial a second time and rejected any further talk of a settlement. In her lawsuit, the actress claimed that she was written out of the show in February 2009 after she had complained that producer Marc Cherry had struck her in the head during a dispute over a scene.
