Stalemate at Black Rock

CBS News and the employees it has blamed for the Rathergate forged-documents fiasco have hit a stalemate.  CBS relieved them of duty and wants them to resign in disgrace.  The employees are refusing, and want to be fired so they can then sue the network for breach of contract.

Josh Howard, Mary Murphy, and Betsy West have all hired lawyers to begin preparing breach-of-contract claims.  They are also likely to claim defamation because of public statements made about them by Leslie Moonves, the CBS News president who was not asked to resign.
