Dan Rather Lawsuit Tossed Out By Judge

September 29, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – A lawsuit filed by Dan Rather against his former employers, CBS, has been thrown out by a judge after ten months.

The lawsuit alleged that CBS had made him a scapegoat for a 2004 news story in which former president George W. Bush’s past with the national guard was released, a story that caused outrage from the White House.

But a judge today said that Rather had failed to provide any proof that the incident had caused him to lose employment opportunities, as the lawsuit claimed.

“Rather’s claim that, but for CBS’ fraud, he could have had more remunerative employment than that which he ultimately obtained at HDNet is unavailing,” the ruling said.

Rather’s $70 million dollar claim has been dismissed.
