    Setback For Dan Rather Lawsuit Against CBS
    Judge Dismisses Portions Of Ex-News Anchor's Suit Naming Three Executives

    NEW YORK, April 10, 2008

    (CBS/AP) A Manhattan judge has dismissed portions of a lawsuit Dan Rather has filed against CBS and Viacom.

    Judicial Hearing Officer Ira Gammerman on Thursday allowed the lawsuit to go foward, but struck down the parts of the suit that name Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone, CBS President Leslie Moonves and former CBS News President Andrew Heyward.

    Quinn said the judge's ruling eliminated Rather's core complaints of fraud and breach of good faith and fair dealing.
