Nicollette Sheridan arrived at court on March 13 in Los Angeles.

It appears as though the jury deciding Nicollette Sheridan’s wrongful-termination suit didn’t have enough evidence to conclude being pushed out of the popular show Desperate Housewives. Following the jury’s announcement on Friday that it was “hopelessly deadlocked,” and two subsequent days of deliberating, a judge declared a mistrial on Monday. The jury had ruled 8-4 in favor of Sheridan, one vote shy of a verdict. Sheridan was seeking $5.7 million from creator Marc Cherry, whom she had feuded with on set and accused of killing off her character because of their personal differences.
