Citizens for Legitimate Government (CLG) has learned that so-called DC Madam, Deborah Jeane Palfrey, filed a pro se "Motion for Pretrial Conference to Consider Matters Relating to Classified Information" under the Classified Information Procedures Act.
This filing alerts the government that Palfrey's defense will likely involve the disclosure of evidence and identities presently deemed "Classified" by the U.S. government.
Recently Palfrey retained the services of Cataphora, a small Silicon Valley search and data analysis company. The firm is assisting her in preparing her defense. A recent article regarding this collaboration is available from RedHerring.com.
Palfrey's filing is another twist in a story that outed Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) several weeks ago and threatens to complicate the lives and politics of more Washington power brokers.

Exclusive: Judge lifts injunction on 'DC Madam' phone records By Lori Price 05 Jul 2007 An email was sent from Jeane Palfrey to Citizens For Legitimate Government '...Judge Kessler has lifted the injunction on the phone records.' From Judge Kessler's Order: Defendant in this case possesses a list of telephone numbers (the "List") that has generated much controversy and speculation. The Government has twice applied to this Court ex parte for Temporary Restraining Orders ("TROs") preventing Defendant from selling the List or from distributing copies for free. The Court granted those applications, in order to preserve the status quo, and, therefore, held a hearing to give Defendant an opportunity to respond. Upon consideration of all the pleadings, the applicable statutes and case law, and the oral argument, the Court concludes that Defendant's request to quash the TROs should be granted.
I asked Jeane Palfrey for a comment: "I am very, very grateful to Judge Kessler, for lifting the injunction." –Sincerely, Jeane
