does not fit the legal definition of a public figure. Of course all law is subject to argument, but there is no question that Nancy herself did not seek to reveal her name. It does not matter what external articles, or fora debate flowed from her appearance in Boulder. It was always her intention to remain the CA woman. What others did to ultimately expose her does not automatically change her status.
Of course I could be wrong, but my feeling is that a court, upon a hearing of the facts, would side with Krebs.
It has already been determined by a District Attorney that the Whites, despite their argument to the contrary, are public figures. That status could have been argued before a court, if they had sued.
