The California Supreme Court has declined to review Nicollette Sheridan's lawsuit over the demise of her role on Desperate Housewives.

The state's high court said it would deny an appeal by the actress in her wrongful termination case against the ABC network and Touchstone Television.

Sheridan said she was fired because she claimed she was hit in the head by series creator Marc Cherry.

ABC attorneys claimed Sheridan's contract simply was not renewed. In March, jurors deadlocked after a two-week trial.

An appeals court found in August that Sheridan was not entitled to a new trial, but should be allowed to file an amended lawsuit claiming she was retaliated against because she complained about her boss.

Desperate Housewives concluded its eight-season run this year. Calls to Sheridan's representatives were not immediately returned Sunday.
