The Reliable Source gossip column in the Washington Post references a Little Rock law school teacher:
The "Washingtonienne" saga grows ever larger and more complex. Former Hill staffer Robert Steinbuch is now not only suing ex-gal pal and co-worker Jessica Cutler in D.C. federal court for describing their liaisons on her notorious '04 sex blog -- he's filed another federal suit against her in Arkansas, where he now lives. And in that suit, he's also going after the big guys: Hyperion Press (which published her naughty roman a clef last year), parent company Disney and HBO, which is developing a TV series based on her story.
Meanwhile, undaunted by the D.C. judge's order to halt the discovery process while he decides whether to throw the case out, Steinbuch on Sunday filed papers seeking to add as a defendant Ana Marie Cox , author of the Wonkette blog, which publicized Cutler's blog. And he also named a price for all his shame: He's seeking $20 million.
