Lawyers abandon federal lawsuit over CIA head's resignation

A Florida woman's federal lawsuit over an investigation that led to the resignation of a former CIA director is collapsing.

Her lawyers have asked a judge on Friday to let them withdraw from the case, citing irreconcilable differences.

Jill Kelley of Tampa, along with her husband, Scott, had sued the government in June 2013 in Washington, alleging that officials violated the U.S. Privacy Act by disclosing information about them during the FBI's investigation of former CIA director David Petraeus (Puh-TRAY-us).

Kelley has declined to comment about the developments or on whether she will continue her case. Lawyers for Kelley did not immediately return phone messages from The Associated Press. The Justice Department declined to comment through a spokeswoman.
