WASHINGTON — A judge Wednesday allowed a lawsuit to proceed against Jessica Cutler, the former Senate aide who posted details of her sex life on the Internet.
The case brought by Senator Mike DeWine's former counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Robert Steinbuch, alleges that Cutler engaged in an invasion of his privacy in 2004 by publishing sexually explicit facts about a relationship with Steinbuch.
Cutler was fired from DeWine's staff after the web log -- which identified her purported sex partners by initials -- created a public sensation.
