Nicollette Sheridan's wrongful termination lawsuit against ABC for killing off her character on Desperate Housewives has resulted in a mistrial, since the jury was deadlocked in an 8-4 vote on the matter.
While ABC and Touchstone Television are asking El Lay Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen to grant a verdict in their favor, Sheridan's lawyers are demanding a retrial. Since eight jury members voted in favor of the actress receiving punitive damages and they needed nine, her legal team thinks they can win a retrial and filed papers that state:

The jury can't make up its mind, so it's looks like Nicollette Sheridan will have to try again!
The jury in the Nicollette v. Desperate Housewives case has declared it a mistrial after they could not reach a verdict.
Nobody wins. But nobody loses either.
But, Team Nicollette still

Looks like the former Governor of Illinois is in luck!
Rod Blagojevich was convicted of giving false information to feds, but he got away with 23 other charges due to a Hung Jury!
The Jurors were in deliberation for 14 days, but they just couldn't come together to convict him on the major corruption charges. Good for you
douchebag Blago, good for you!
Blago's more serious charges included racketeering, wire fraud, attempted extortion, and bribery.
Bribery, eh? We HOPE you didn't bribe any members of that jury, Blago. We really hope not.
What do U think of the verdict of the Blago trial?

Kirsten Dunst will have to testify again in the case of the accused burglar who stole her $2000 handbag and other property from a Soho Grand hotel suite back in 2007.
She testified last fall, but the jury was deadlocked and the case was sent for a retrial.
James Jimenez, the 35-year-old high school dropout, was convicted of trespassing and felony burglary charges and claimed that he was too stupid to commit a crime. He then later claimed his friend duped him into doing it.
Why was there a hung jury in the first place?? It sounds like this guy is totally guilty!
Get 'em, Kiki!
