Dan Rather loses $70 million case against CBS

For more than two years, Dan Rather has been seeking vengeance, vindication and $70 million from his former employer, CBS. He's not getting any of it.

The appellate division of the New York Supreme Court has dismissed Rather's lawsuit, throwing out his relatively straightforward breach-of-contract claim along with the more ambitious allegations of fraud and tortious interference. "[W]e find the complaint must be dismissed in its entirety," the appellate panel wrote in its decision, released Tuesday.
