New York's top court Tuesday rejected Dan Rather's bid to reinstate his $70 million breach-of-contract lawsuit against CBS Corp.
Rather's motion was denied without comment Tuesday by the Court of Appeals.
Rather cited new documents CBS had obtained, but the authenticity of the documents later came under attack.
It was Rather’s “fake, but accurate” story.
Rather was fired by CBS in June 2006 after 44 years with the network.
