Former Desperate Housewives actress Nicollette Sheridan has failed to have her case against the show's producers ABC Studios, Touchstone and creator Marc Cherry, appealed in court.
The actress first launched a suit against the studios, Touchstone Television, and Cherry in 2010, claiming that she had been fired as a result of filing a complaint against Cherry, who she alleges hit her in the head during an argument.
Nicollette's claim went to court and Cherry was later dismissed from the Los Angeles Superior Court suit, and a jury failed to find a result to the claims put against Touchstone and ABC.
Confirming that her appeal has been denied, The Hollywood Reporter reported California Supreme Court chief justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye saying:
"The petition for review is denied. The request for an order requesting depublication of the opinion is denied."
It is now thought that the actress' case will be taken back to the court of appeal where she will have to prove that her exit from the show infringed the state's labour law.
