(AP) A judge has dismissed actress Nicollette Sheridan's long-running lawsuit against ABC over her firing from the hit series "Desperate Housewives."


Judge Michael Stern ruled Friday that Sheridan's case couldn't proceed because the actress should have exhausted her claims to a labor commissioner before pursuing a trial.


Sheridan was seeking a re-trial on her claim that she was fired from "Desperate Housewives" because she complained that the show's creator Marc Cherry hit her on the head in 2008 on the set.


A jury in 2012 deadlocked 8-4 in Sheridan's favor that ABC had retaliated against Sheridan.


Adam Levin, an attorney for ABC, said the network was pleased with the ruling.


Sheridan's lawyers say they plan to appeal.
