Judge Elizabeth Allen WhiteÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â has thrown outÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â formerÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Desperate Housewives’ castmember NicoletteÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Sheridan’s battery claim against Cherry, saying there wasn’t enough proof, and any injury would have been covered by worker’s compensation. But was she fired as a result of the dispute?
A thrilled Marc Cherry said, “I’m a very happy man” about the dismissal of the battery case, but it is in question as to whether he ended up firing her because of the incident. Sheridan says she was fired in February 2009Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â because of theÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â altercation, which was a discussion about a September 2008 script.
CherryÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â says he onlyÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â “tapped” her to demonstrate the scene.
AÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â set construction coordinatorÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â testified Tuesday that he received a 2010 email discussing the planned deletion of emails related to Sheridan’s lawsuit and firing. He says he believes the email had been sent to him in error at the time, and he deleted it. He came forward at the last minute, claiming his conscience had gotten the best of him.
Defense attorneys questioned his recollection, and argued that in fact the content of the deleted email was about preservingÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â the records, saying it was possible that he misunderstood the email. The witness agreed that it was possible. The computer was turned over for forensic analysis.
CherryÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â has testified that he decided to writeÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Sheridan’s character off the show months before the September 2008 argument. Recently, the character played by Mark Denton was killed off.
