Today’s court appearance in the Dan Rather v. CBS case wrapped up late this afternoon. During the hearing, which was before the Appellate Court, arguments were heard from both sides.
CBS was appealing Judge Ira Gammerman’s decision not to dismiss two remaining claims – Rather’s contract dispute and his fiduciary duty to the company. Gammerman had already dismissed five of Rather’s seven claims and four of the five original defendants.
Rather’s lawyers, meanwhile, were appealing Judge Gammerman’s dismissals.
Attorneys for CBS released this statement to TVNewser after the hearing: “CBS is confident that ultimately — whether through appeals, future motions for summary judgment or at trial — CBS will prevail in full.”
No rulings were made today in a case that was first filed Sept. 19, 2007.
