Something tells me that Valerie Plame and husband Joe Wilson’s death grip on the font of publicity from this thing will not loosen any time soon.


Today, U.S. District Judge John D. Bates of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia dismissed Plame and Wilson’s suit on the grounds that they failed to exhaust their administrative remedies before bringing suit, and the “alleged tortious conduct, namely the disclosure of Mrs. Wilson’s status as a covert operative, was incidental to the kind of conduct that defendants were employed to perform.” Wilson v. Libby, No. 06-1258 (JDB), slip op. at 39 (D.D.C. July 19, 2007) (emphasis added).

Thx to Judge Bates, and the Washington Post
