Federal prosecutors said on Tuesday they would not file any charges in the cyberstalking investigation of Paula Broadwell, the biographer whose affair with former CIA chief David Petraeus led to his resignation.

“After applying relevant case law to the particular facts of this case, the United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Florida has decided not to pursue a federal case regarding the alleged acts of “cyberstalking” involving Paula Broadwell,” the U.S. Attorney's office in Tampa said in a statement.
