Desperate Housewives Trial

February 29, 2012 by staff 

Desperate Housewives Trial, Opening statements in the trial of actress Nicollette Sheridan’s claim that her “Desperate Housewives” character was killed off because she complained about mistreatment by the TV show’s creator were delayed Wednesday morning as the judge considered an evidence dispute.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White tossed reporters from the courtroom while she heard arguments over whether the jury should hear conversations that may have been protected by attorney-client privilege.

Once lawyers deliver their openings to the jury, Sheridan is expected to testify in her wrongful termination lawsuit against series creator-producer-writer Marc Cherry and ABC.

Several of Sheridan’s former cast mates — including Eva Longoria, Marcia Cross, James Denton, Felicity Huffman and Neal McDonough — are on the list of witnesses expected to defend Cherry.

The suit contends that Cherry created “a hostile work environment” from the show’s beginning in 2004.

“Cherry has a reputation for behaving in an extremely abusive and aggressive manner toward the individuals who work on the show, and is known for regularly demeaning the writers and staff in front of others on the show, including Sheridan,” the suit says.
