This lawsuit is still happening??

Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry and the show's former star Nicolette Sheridan have been in what's felt like a years long legal battle. Sheridan is suing Cherry for wrongful termination, breach of contract, and battery after her character was killed off the show.

However, Cherry is disputing the claims of wrongful termination because her contract only had a one year deal and the option to renew it wasn't utilized after the fifth season.

His lawyers say:

"Sheridan's services were governed by - as they had been, year after year - a one year fixed term contract between Touchstone and Starlike, which gave Touchstone the option to renew Sheridan's services for six additional one year-terms (or Seasons)…Sheridan had no more expectation of renewed employment for a sixth season than she had after the first season."

Sheridan claims that he also physically assaulted, but dropped those charges back in December. Hmm, interesting.

The case is set to go to trial in the fall where we're sure to see PLEN-TY of fireworks between the two parties.
