Dominick Dunne is out to get Gary Condit, and Condit is returning the favor in the form of a defamation lawsuit. For a defense lawyer's perspective on why Condit should drop it, see this link.

Defamation actions against public figures are almost impossible to win, but come on. Dunne apparently accused Condit of being complicit in a plot whereby Chandra Levy was kidnapped by middle eastern types and then dropped in the ocean. He even repeated the allegation after her body was discovered, according to John W. Dean's thoughtful argument in favor of carrying on with the lawsuit.
