Will Nicollette Sheridan and ABC Settle Their DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES Case?

As the jury ended its third day of deliberations at an 8-4 impasse, attorneys for Nicollette Sheridan and ABC are in a settlement meeting in front of Judge Helen Bendix, E! News has confirmed.

If the two sides can reach a monetary settlement, which would presumably remain confidential, it would render the jury's decision moot. Of course, whichever attorney believes they have the eight jurors in their favor may be less inclined to settle. Sheridan's lawyer Mark Baute said he believes his side is winning.

Earlier the jury said it is “hopelessly deadlocked.” They are split 8-4 and Judge Elizabeth Allen White told them just now to take the weekend to think about it and come back Monday. If they can’t come to a verdict, she told them, she’ll have to declare a mistrial. “I know how frustrating this must be,” Judge White said.

Stay tuned!
