ABC in clearly not interested in quietly settling the lawsuit brought against it by fromer "Desperate Housewives" star Nicollette Sheridan, reports THR. Esq.
According to the report, "The network has hired Adam Levin, an employment litigation specialist at L.A.’s Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp who successfully defended Warner Bros. Television in the high-profile harassment claim filed by a writers’ assistant on ‘Friends.’ Levin has hit the ground running, serving requests for documents and detailed information on Sheridan and seeking to take her videotaped deposition as soon as possible, perhaps as early as August. ‘We intend to delve into the merits of her claims, all of which we strenuously dispute,’ Levin tells us. Sheridan’s litigation lawyers Mark Baute and Patrick Maloney did not return calls."
