Exposed Spy and Spouse Sue Darth Cheney and Evil Minions

So, Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson, whose lives were potentially endangered when BushCorp™ "embarked on an anonymous 'whispering campaign' designed to discredit ... (the Wilsons) and to deter other critics from speaking out," are suing.

Good for them.

And the key point here, a civil suit doesn't require the same standard of proof as does a criminal case.

Making them much easier to prosecute (see, for example, the results of O.J. Simpson's criminal trial versus those of his civil trial).

I'm looking for a long and fruitful discovery process.

[Talking Points Memo has the complaint posted here.]
