LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A judge has declared a mistrial in Nicollette Sheridan's wrongful termination case after jurors could not reach a verdict on the claims of the former star of "Desperate Housewives."
Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White released the panel Monday after they reported they were deadlocked.
The group deliberated for more than two days on Sheridan's claim that her Edie Britt character was killed off in retaliation for her complaints that series creator Marc Cherry struck her on the show's set in September 2008.
Cherry and ABC, which airs "Housewives" have denied wrongdoing. The veteran TV writer testified he had authority to kill off Sheridan's role four months before their dustup.
The jury heard conflicting testimony and evidence throughout the two-week trial.
Sheridan was seeking roughly $6 million in damages.
