Petraeus Scandal Figure Sues FBI, Pentagon over Alleged Leaks
Petraeus Scandal Figure Sues FBI, Pentagon over Alleged Leaks

Thomson Reuters; June 4, 2013

A Tampa woman whose name surfaced in the scandal involving former CIA Director David Petraeus' extramarital affair has sued the FBI, Defense Department and unidentified government officials alleging they defamed her and violated her rights.

In a 65-page complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington on Monday, Tampa socialite Jill Kelley and her husband, Scott, said government officials willfully leaked damaging false information about the pair to the media.

News outlets suggested that Kelley and General John Allen, one-time commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, had exchanged embarrassing personal emails.

The lawsuit said Kelley was subjected to public "ridicule, moral opprobrium, scorn and derision" and asked the court to order government agencies and officials to apologize formally to the Kelleys and to award them damages. No figure was mentioned.
