Harriton High product Larry Klayman called it the biggest legal threat to the Clintons.

A New York Judge called it a complaint that read more like a Mickey Spillane novel.

And so yesterday, former NY Daily News bon vivant Jared Paul Stern found his case dismissed.

The former Page Six gossiper had alleged that the Clintons had conspired with the Daily News and billionaire Democratic financier Ron Burkle to ruin his reputation.

His suit didn't help.

The New York Times writes:

Justice Walter B. Tolub of State Supreme Court in Manhattan dismissed all of Mr. Stern's claims, which were contained in a complaint filed by his lawyer that the judge called "a political diatribe."

Stern, you may remember, is the Philly-born, fedora and monicle sporting Bennington grad, who wound up starring in a grainy video that showed him telling Burkle that for six figures he could be protected from inaccurate reporting in the gossip columns.

Stern's suit contented Burkle was trying to bribe the writer.

Klayman is a former Justice Department lawyer from Rosemont who now practices in Miami. His Freedom Watch Web site includes this pitch for funding:

Freedom Watch, the "Dream Team" and its clients need your help to save our country – for our children and grandchildren – from the ruinous corruption of Bill and Hillary Clinton and their friends that would otherwise destroy liberty and democracy.
