For more than five years after Proskauer Rose attorney Christopher Wolf moved into his Georgetown home, he knew Valerie Plame and Joseph Wilson simply as neighbors “sharing cookouts, borrowing missing ingredients for a recipe from each other, laughing when, unrehearsed, one of their 3-year-olds decided to call me �Wolfie’ (instead of Mr. Wolf as instructed by his mother),” Wolf wrote in a July 2005 op-ed in USA Today. But when Robert Novak outed Plame as a CIA agent in a July 2003 column, the relationship between neighbors turned from friendly to professional. Now Wolf is representing the couple in a lawsuit filed July 13 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby Jr., Karl Rove, and Vice President Dick Cheney alleging that they violated the couple’s constitutional rights by leaking Plame’s identity as an undercover intelligence operative in order to get back at her husband’s criticism of the administration’s rationale for invading Iraq. Wolf, 52, isn’t a player in the white-collar bar. Rather, he specializes in Internet and privacy law and has represented a number of major companies, including MCI Inc. and the Washington Post Co. In 1998 he challenged the U.S. Navy over allegations that it had improperly used AOL (then known as America Online) to obtain information about an official in order to discharge him under the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.
