The catfight between Nicolette Sheridan and Desperate Housewives isn’t over yet. A judge overseeing Sheridan’s $5.7 million wrongful-termination lawsuit against ABC and the show’s creation has set a retrial for September. The judge had declared a mistrial in March after the jury—which was deadlocked at 8-4 in favor of Sheridan—didn’t have enough evidence to conclude that her character was killed off on the show due to personal differences with creator Marc Cherry. Cherry’s lawyers argued that ABC had discussed killing off Sheridan’s character before her feud with Cherry.
