Jones v., ClintonJones v. Clinton


After fighting Paula Jones' sexual harassment lawsuit for four years, President Bill Clinton settled the case out of court on November 13 by agreeing to pay Jones $850,000. But the deal included no apology from the president.

The settlement seemed to have split the difference between the previous offers from both sides. Most recently the president was offering $700,000 while the Jones team was insisting on $950,000.

Clinton's personal attorney, Bob Bennett, said Clinton "has decided he is not prepared to spend one more hour on this matter" and there was no admission of wrongdoing by Clinton in the settlement agreement.

But Jones, who had alleged that then-Arkansas Gov. Clinton made a crude sexual proposition of her, claimed victory. "I feel that I have won," Jones told the syndicated television program "Inside Edition." "I think I have made an impact in the workplace and I do believe that will prevail over any of the other things in the end."
