Woman sues ex-husband, a Fort Bragg soldier, in revenge porn lawsuit

FORT BRAGG, N.C. — A woman is suing her Special Forces major ex-husband, saying he posted online nude pictures she sent him privately when he was away because he didn’t like paying child support.

The revenge porn lawsuit says Elizabeth Ann Clark’s former husband, Adam Matthew Clark, posted his wife’s intimate pictures on Craigslist saying she had sexually transmitted diseases and asking for people to contact her for sexual favors.

The lawsuit appears to be the first of its kind filed in Cumberland County since North Carolina enacted a revenge porn law in 2015, the Fayetteville Observer reported. Under that law, defendants may be ordered to pay $1,000 for each day the photos are online or $10,000, whichever is greater, the paper reported.

Posting revenge porn can also be a felony in North Carolina. The woman’s lawyer told the Fayetteville Observer she reported the pictures to the police, but it doesn’t appear any charges have been filed.

The ex-wife is also suing Kimberly Rae Barrett, the woman she said her husband was having an affair with. Barrett is a lieutenant colonel and a doctor at Womack Army Medical Center, the hospital on Fort Bragg, the Fayetteville Observer reported.

The newspaper also reported that in separate court filings related to the Clarks' divorce, Adam Clark said that he and Barrett were friends before they began dating. He also alleges Elizabeth Clark harassed him and Barrett repeatedly over two years, and that she abused over-the-counter medications and violated terms of their separation agreement, according to the Fayetteville Observer.

Elizabeth Clark denies the accusations, her attorney told the Fayetteville newspaper.

The 1st Special Forces Command told the newspaper it is also investigating. Adultery is a crime under military law.
