Nicollette Sheridan
will get another chance to prove she was wrongfully terminated from "Desperate Housewives" -- because a judge has decided to allow a retrial after the previous one ended with a hung jury.

ABC/Disney had asked the judge to dismiss the case based on the evidence that surfaced during trial earlier this year ... but the judge just shot them down.

The judge has set the retrial for September 10 -- but the judge strongly urged both Disney and Nicollette to settle the case. And based on what we know, this case will never be re-tried, because the jury vote in the first trial was 8 - 4 in favor of the actress -- she was one vote shy of getting a verdict ... and Disney is not going to play with that fire a second time around.

Way to go Nicolette! Don't give up and keep pushing for it. Women constantly get put down, are discriminated against, have to deal with so much sexism, and there's not many women writers/producers/directors in Hollywood. Hollywood is mans best friend after their dogs. You'd think this was from the 1940's but it's still happening now. When will men get it that women are just as capable, talented, probably smarter, and work harder than them?
