Yesterday Nicollette Sheridan removed claims of physical and mental abuse in her $20 million lawsuit against her former employer, Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry.
So what does this mean? The case will continue, but now that she's retracted the abuse claims, the defense has agreed to drop its request for the actress to submit to physical and psychological evaluations, according to Radar. Sheridan will still pursue lost wages, benefits and other financial compensation in the suit, which names Cherry, Touchstone Television Productions, ABC Studios and ABC Entertainment.
When Sheridan first filed suit last April, she alleged that during an on set squabble in September of 2008, Cherry "took her aside and forcefully hit her with his hands across her face and head." That's a pretty lofty accusation to make!
Did you ever believe her?
