Lawyer: Nicollette Standing Up For Her Rights
A lawyer representing Nicollette Sheridan in her lawsuit against Marc Cherry is letting us know that he believes in his client. "Nicollette worked very hard on the show and was a model employee. Mr. Cherry's behavior towards Nicollette was and is nothing short of abusive and appalling."
He also continues on to say that Marc Cherry and ABC are expected to play dirty "We expect the case to be hard fought, and it will not be a surprise if ABC and Mr. Cherry try to depict Nicollette to be something other than a team player and long-standing industry professional."
He concludes by saying that Nicolette is standing up for her rights and attempting to help change the environment over at the Desperate Housewives set."The lawsuit is not something Nicollette wanted to do, it's something she felt compelled to do. "Nicollette asked ABC for help and protection from Mr. Cherry's abusive behavior, and ultimately, ABC was not willing or able to provide that protection. Sometimes the only way that a safe and normal work environment can be created is when a hard-working person like Nicollette stands up for herself and her rights, and in doing so help protect others who have had to work in a hostile environment.
