In Rather vs. CBS, Deadline Looms

Tomorrow, Thursday November 15, marks an important date in Dan Rather’s civil lawsuit against CBS.

CBS has until the end of the day, according to members of Mr. Rather’s legal team, to file its motion to dismiss argument in response to Mr. Rather’s suit.

Contacted on Wednesday evening, Rebecca Hughes Parker, an associate with Sonnenschein, Nath, & Rosenthal, the firm representing Mr. Rather, said that she had yet to see the motion, but expected CBS to meet the deadline tomorrow.

Media Mob has put in a call to Weil, Gotshal & Manges, the firm, which, according to court documents, is representing CBS in the case. We’ll let you know when we hear back from them.
