Dan Rather’s Suit Against CBS Tossed Out
Dan “Fake Documents” Rather is not having a good day: Appeals court tosses Dan Rather’s $70M suit against CBS.
Bad news for Dan Rather: His $70 million lawsuit against CBS is no more.
In a 19-page decision made public Tuesday, a state appeals court dismissed the legendary newsman’s suit against CBS. Rather, 77, sued the Tiffany network in 2007 after his career at CBS collapsed in the wake of a “60 Minutes II” report about former President George W.Bush’s Vietnam-era military service. …
As recently as Sept. 21, lawyers for Rather said he would be vindicated and that Bush’s military service would be proven to be a sham.
A lawyer for Rather and a CBS spokeswoman could not immediately be reached for comment.
