AFTER ALYCIA LANE was fired a week ago, all signs indicated a wrongful termination lawsuit against CBS3 was forthcoming from her attorney Paul Rosen.

Rosen, of Spector, Gadon, and Rosen, issued a statement calling Lane's termination an "unusual and unwarranted step" as she had not been convicted of any wrongdoing nor had she yet been able to speak publicly about the allegations. Of course, she could speak publicly, but her lawyers don't want her to.

Is Rosen's delay in filing at the request of New York criminal attorney David Smith? Smith, who has repped Nicole Richie and Lizzie Grubman, offered no comment the other day when we asked whether he had advised Lane to hold off on a civil suit against CBS3 pending the outcome of her New York criminal matter which is listed for an April 3 hearing date.

"The shoe will definitely drop," Rosen told us for today's column  "However, I do not think it appropriate to tell the press in advance the strategy of what I plan to do, or when I plan to do it."

Lane's charged with a felony count of assault for allegedly striking a female NYPD officer during a dispute on Dec. 16 between passengers of a cab in which Lane was riding and a car that contained three plainclothes officers. Through Smith, Lane has denied striking the officer or calling her a "f---ing dyke," as the police report alleges.

We reached Lane's television agent, Gregg Willinger, also part of her team of people interested in a prompt and positive outcome of her criminal case, to ask whether he was shopping her for jobs in other markets, or whether he would wait until her case was resolved.

"You would probably be the last person in the world who I would want to tell that to," he said.
