JUNEAU, Alaska— Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is receiving legal help from the state in a civil lawsuit.

Assistant Attorney General Dale House says Palin asked the state to help defend her against the lawsuit by activist Chip Thoma.

The claims made against Palin date to when she was governor, and House says state involvement in such cases is typical.

The state will pay for House's participation, but not for Palin's personal lawyer, who will be co-counsel.

Thoma is suing Palin for at least $100,000, claiming that she undertook a campaign to "punish, embarrass, discredit and silence" him while governor after he complained about tour bus traffic around the governor's mansion.

The traffic increased after she returned to Juneau following the failed 2008 GOP presidential campaign.
