After Jill Kelley contacted authorities regarding intimidating emails from an anonymous source, who turned out to be Paula Broadwell, the biographer and also secret lover of CIA director David Petraeus, she herself became part of the media carnival that attended the dishonor and trial of the CIA leader. The FBI leaked her name, and suggested she had engaged in e-mail conversations with Gen. John Allen, which the anonymous officials insinuated were inappropriate. Therefore, Jill Kelley and Dr. Scott Kelley filed suit in June against the FBI and the Pentagon. The Justice Department, in turn, has sought dismissal of the lawsuit this Tuesday, claiming that though she was exposed to ridicule, the suit failed to show facts that the FBI and Defense Department in fact violated her rights.

Alan Raul, who is an attorney for the Kelleys, says that he is insisting on the case, “so that justice can be done, and that other citizens may feel safe in coming forward to the government with evidence of crimes,” as CNN reported. He said the government did not deny the claims that the government leaked Kelley’s name and that her and her husband’s names were subsequently and unfairly dragged through the mud. The Kelleys are also denying that the e-mails between her and Allen were inappropriate, despite what the media ran with.
