    The Daily News reports CBS Broadcasting wants to dismiss the suit, and has asked that Lane have a mental health evaluation and hand over her mental health records. Lane thinks the request is bogus, saying her only related medical issues are the depression and emotional distress resulting in the actions of the station and former co-anchor Larry Mendte, who was also fired and later pleaded guilty to hacking into Lane’s email account.

    Today’s deposition is scheduled at an undisclosed location.
