Former Desperate Housewives star Nicollette Sheridan has dropped the most incendiary claims of abuse from the $20 million lawsuit she filed this spring against ABC, the show’s creator Marc Cherry, and Touchstone Television. Sheridan, who played Edie Britt on the series, filed the suit in April after being dropped from the show, alleging that she had been assaulted by Cherry on the set and then fired when she reported the abuse to ABC. In a joint stipulation filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Sheridan agreed not to pursue her claim that she had been subjected to intentional emotional distress or seek any damages for emotional or physical abuse. In exchange, Sheridan will not have to submit to a mental or physical examination.
