A Virginia judge has dismissed White House party crasher Tareq Salahi's $50 million lawsuit against the rock musician who ran off with Salahi's wife.

Salahi accused Journey guitarist Neal Schon and two affiliated entertainment companies of scheming to break up his marriage and capitalize on the split for business purposes. The Northern Virginia Daily reports that Warren County Circuit Judge Dennis Hupp ruled that Salahi's claims would be more appropriately addressed in divorce proceedings with his estranged wife, Michaele Salahi, than in a business practices lawsuit.

Tareq Salahi said after Monday's hearing that he intends to appeal to the Virginia Supreme Court.

The Salahis gained notoriety in 2009 when they crashed a White House state dinner.

Tareq Salahi has announced plans to run for governor.
