It may be the end of the road for Dan Rather’s breach of contract lawsuit against his former employer, CBS, The New York Times reports.
The anchor’s request to appeal his lawsuit was turned down by the New York Court of Appeals on Tuesday. In September, the appellate division of New York State Supreme Court ruled that the $70 million suit, brought in 2007, should be dismissed.
CBS executives said this brings legal proceedings to an end. Rather’s lawyer did not immediately comment.
