A federal judge just dismissed Valerie Plame's lawsuit against the federal officials she blames for outing her as a covert CIA operative in retaliation for her husband's criticism of the decision to invade Iraq.
According to the Associated Press, "U.S. District Judge John D. Bates dismissed the case on jurisdictional grounds and said he would not express an opinion on the constitutional arguments. Bates dismissed the case against all defendants: [Vice President] Cheney, White House political adviser Karl Rove and former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby."
