Nicolette Sheridan's Battery Charge Gets Dismissed

Posted Wednesday March 14, 2012 12:50 AM GMT

After hearing the disappointing news that her battery claim has been dismissed, Nicollette Sheridan was spotted leaving the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles, California on Tuesday afteroon (March 13).

In her best professional attire, the former "Desperate Housewives" actress walked out of the legal building hand-in-hand with lawyer Marc Baute after being rocked by the news that the judge dropped her lawsuit against “Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry and ABC.

Sheridan claimed Cherry hit her over the head back in 2008, but Judge Elizabeth Allen White ruled that the prosecution did not have enough proof to charge for battery.

Now, Cherry, who admitted to hitting the actress while saying that it was just a “tap,” is no longer a defendant in the case.

Sheridan’s wrongful termination claims will now be the center of the closing arguments.
