Marc Cherry must be jumping for joy because his real life dramz, that spawned as a result of firing Nicollette Sheridan from ABC drama Desperate Housewives, is over!
The actress had included a battery charge against the show creator in her lawsuit against ABC for wrongful termination. She testified "he hit me and he hit me hard" during the trial, but the claim has been tossed out of court. The judge decided it didn't meet standards of workman's compensation statutes applying to the case and now Cherry is ”no longer a defendant in this case."
Relieved that he is personally in the clear, he told sources:
“Obviously I am thrilled by the judge’s decision, but I am going to withhold all comment until the case is resolved.”
Sheridan's lawyer isn't worried about the charge being dropped and looks forward to probing deeper into the heart of the matter, which he summed up by saying, "You hit me, and I complained and you fired me because of it.”
Who are U rooting for in this workman's comp case? Team Sheridan or Team
