WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is seeking dismissal of a lawsuit by a Tampa, Fla., businesswoman whose complaint to the FBI led to Gen. David Petraeus' ouster as CIA director.
If a federal judge allows the lawsuit by Jill Kelley to proceed, the case could delve into the roles played in the Petraeus scandal by the FBI, the Pentagon and other parts of the Obama administration.
Kelley wants to find out who in the U.S. government leaked her name and some of her emails to the news media amid the uproar over Petraeus's affair with Paula Broadwell, author of a biography on Petraeus.
In a court filing Tuesday, the Justice Department says Kelley has failed to present any facts suggesting that the FBI and the Pentagon flagrantly disregarded her privacy rights.
