"Desperate Housewives" trial: no verdict Thursday
By Todd Cunningham and Pamela Chelin
LOS ANGELES, March 15 (TheWrap.com) - Jurors deliberating over Nicollette Sheridan's $6 million wrongful termination suit against ABC and Touchstone failed to come to decision on Thursday.
The jury foreman told L.A. Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White that they were having a difficult time reaching a verdict. The judge asked if further instructions, explanations or more closing arguments would help, but the foreman said no.
Outside the courtroom, Sheridan's attorney Mark Baute said that "what I'm seeing is some frustration and polarization ... I think the majority of the jurors are in Nicollette's favor but it takes nine," a reference to the nine jurors required for a verdict.
Defense attorney Adam Levin declined to comment.
