Rather_9.29.jpgDan Rather will sit with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto today for his first interview since his case against CBS was dismissed. The interview will air on Cavuto’s 4pmET “Your World” on FNC and his 6pmET “Cavuto” on Fox Business Network.

Mediate reports that “Rather’s next plan of action — his lawyer hinted at an appeal yesterday — will be discussed.”

On Tuesday, The New York State Supreme Court’s Appellate Division threw out Rather’s $70 million lawsuit against CBS. At the time, Rather’s lawyer, Martin Gold, told TVNewser “We believe the decision is incorrect on a number of grounds and, accordingly, we intend to ask the New York Court of Appeals to review it.”

Rather Case Against CBS Dismissed; Rather’s Lawyers to Ask for Review

Rather_9.29.jpgBreaking: The New York State Supreme Court’s Appellate Division has thrown out Dan Rather‘s $70 million lawsuit against his former employer, CBS Corp. “We find the complaint must be dismissed in its entirety,” reads the decision. The Appellate court found that the motion court “erred in denying the defendants’ motion to dismiss the claims for breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty.”

Jim Quinn, a lawyer representing CBS told The Observer‘s Felix Gillette, “We are obviously very happy. We thought this was the right decision all along.”

Rather’s lawyer Martin Gold says it’s not over for their side. “We are extremely disappointed with the Appellate Court’s decision,” Gold tells TVNewser. “We believe the decision is incorrect on a number of grounds and, accordingly, we intend to ask the New York Court of Appeals to review it.”
