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.
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.
