John Shaw didn’t have a pleasant parting with the Defense Department when he was pushed out of his position as deputy undersecretary of defense for international technology security in December 2004. But that hasn’t stopped the Pentagon from coming to his defense in a civil suit accusing Shaw of unlawfully leaking to the press allegations that former Coalition Provisional Authority official Daniel Sudnick had taken bribes while arranging cellular-company licenses in Iraq. In an Aug. 28 filing in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Department of Justice attorney Judry Subar asked Judge Ellen Huvelle to dismiss Sudnick’s complaint, claiming that because many of the allegations occurred while Shaw was a government employee, the United States must be substituted in Shaw’s place as the defendant. That substitution, according to the filing, would require the suit to be dismissed because Sudnick “did not exhaust his administrative remedies before he brought this action.”
