Say false information was deliberately disseminated

The Tampa socialite whose complaints about cyberstalking exposed the affair that brought down David Petraeus filed a lawsuit Monday that accuses federal officials of violating her privacy.

Jill Kelley and her husband, Scott, filed the lawsuit in federal court in the District of Columbia seeking an apology and unspecified damages from what they say were willful leaks by federal officials of false and damaging information about them. Those officials should have been protecting them and their privacy, they say.
