Justice Dept. wants lawsuit tossed
WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Justice Department is seeking to end a lawsuit filed by the Florida socialite who brought about the fall of General David Patreaus.
In an act that triggered the criminal probe resulting in Petraeus's forced resignation, Kelley told the FBI that she and several others had gotten harassing emails, some from Paula Broadwell.
She's the woman who wrote a biography of Petraeus. The two had also had an affair.
Kelley says the government wrongly released her identity to reporters, violating her privacy.
The DOJ says there's no proof her rights were tampered with and they want the lawsuit tossed.
