There's been a huge sigh of relief on Wisteria Lane.
A judge on Tuesday dismissed the most sensational charge in Nicollette Sheridan's wrongful termination suit – a battery charge against producer Marc Cherry for allegedly slapping her in the head during an argument.
The jury in Los Angeles must still consider whether the actress, 48, was fired from ABC's Desperate Housewives in retaliation for complaining about the incident.
Superior Court judge Elizabeth White said there was not enough evidence to support the battery charge, the Los Angeles Times reports.

After a dispute about her lines, Nicollette Sheridan says that Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry settled the argument in a shocking way.
He hit her with his open hand, she testified in court Thursday.
"It was a nice wallop to my head," the actress said in her multimillion-dollar wrongful termination trial in a Los Angeles courtroom.
Asked by her lawyer if she was willing to demonstrate in court for him, she said, "I don't want to hurt you."

There always seems to be available real estate on Wisteria Lane for new neighbors moving in from other TV neighborhoods: Beverly Hills, 90210’s Brian Austin Green will join the Desperate Housewives cast as a working class contractor who catches the eye of both Bree (Marcia Cross) and another newbie, Ugly Betty’s Vanessa Williams. And series creator Marc Cherry also hopes to save some property for his longtime friend Betty White.
"Marcia will have a new love interest in the form of Brian Austin Green," Cherry said at a Television Critics Association panel on Tuesday. "We wanted Bree to be involved with a hunky blue collar contractor and take her out of her refined and educated world – someone who's a bit younger and someone who would be challenging to Bree. We read the first script of the season and I introduced Brian as Marcia's new love interest and then I said, 'You're welcome, Marcia!' and Marcia blushed."

Eva Longoria Parker won't take sides in the legal spat between Nicollette Sheridan and Marc Cherry, but she will say this: that the Desperate Housewives set is a healthy work environment.
"The only thing I can say is we don't have a hostile set, and Marc's really nice, and Nicollette's a nice girl, too," Longoria Parker says in an interview set to air Monday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Sheridan, 46, who played Edie Britt on the show, filed court papers this week saying she was fired after complaining that Cherry, the show's creator, had hit her in the face on set.
