The California Supreme Court turned down the appeal of former Desperate Housewives star Nicollette Sheridan on Friday. In a brief ruling by Chief Justice Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye the court “denied” Sheridan’s latest appeal in her legal battle against ABC and Touchstone Television. The ruling represents yet another defeat for the actress in her wrongful termination case. In September, the California 2nd District Court of Appeal denied Sheridan’s petition for a rehearing of the suit. A month earlier another appeals court panel rejected Sheridan’s claim of being wrongfully fired from the ABC show back in early 2009. The jurists in that ruling left open the possibility for Sheridan to pursue claims that she was retaliated against after complaining that Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry struck her in the head during an on-set argument. The lawsuit over Sheridan’s original claims ended in a mistrial March 19th of this year. Neither lawyers for Sheridan nor ABC responded to requests for comment today.
