Rather's Lawyer: CBS Tactics are 'Unfortunate,' Confident Discovery Process Will Proceed

Yesterday, in New York Supreme Court, CBS lawyers filed a motion to dismiss Dan Rather’s civil lawsuit against the network, alleging that their former Voice of God news anchor was out to “settle old scores” and “to misuse the discovery process and the power of subpeona in an effort to vindicate his own faulty reporting.”

Today, in a statement released to Media Mob, Mr. Rather’s lead attorney, Marty Gold, responded:

“It is unfortunate that CBS is trying to delay discovery of the facts and a trial of Dan’s claims. We are confident the Court will reject these tactics and and allow the case to go forward.”
