Nicollette Sheridan Feared "Being Retaliated Against"

Posted Wednesday March 7, 2012 7:41 AM GMT

Continuing to fight her way through a major lawsuit, Nicollette Sheridan was spotted going into the Stanley Mosk Courthouse on Tuesday (March 6).

The former "Desperate Housewives" actress kept a straight face as she made her way to the legal building in Los Angeles, unlike the man she is suing, the creator of Desperate Housewives Marc Cherry, who offered up a big grin to onlookers and media members upon arrival.

Sheridan filed a lawsuit against Cherry in April of 2010 for allegedly "attacking" her on set when he hit her in the head "very hard" during a rehearsal on Sept. 24, 2008 after she questioned him about a script change.

As for why she didn't report the incident immediately, the blonde bombshell - who played housewife Edie Britt for five seasons - welled with tears as she told jurors, "Quite frankly, I was worried about being retaliated against."

During his testimony, Cherry told jurors, "I felt I had permission," and claimed he "tapped her head," saying only his "fingers" touched Sheridan.
