Pink Slime Lawsuit Hearing

ELK POINT, S.D. (AP) --
   Oral arguments are scheduled for December in a motion to dismiss a defamation lawsuit over ABC News' coverage of a meat product that critics dub "pink slime."
    The lawsuit filed by Beef Products Inc. was moved in June from federal court to circuit court. ABC is asking the circuit judge to dismiss the case.
   Dakota Dunes-based BPI claims the TV network damaged the company by misleading consumers into believing that its signature product -- lean, finely textured beef -- is unhealthy and unsafe. It is seeking $1.2 billion in damages.
    BPI officials say the product is safe and the coverage led to the closure of three plants and roughly 700 layoffs.
    The Elk County Clerk of Courts office says the hearing is scheduled for Dec. 17 at 1 p.m.
