Subject: Jones' Settlement Talks Set For Tuesday
William McMillan, acting as interim lawyer for Paula Jones, tells CNN by phone that he plans to call President Bill Clinton's attorney, Robert Bennett, on Tuesday "to see how the conversation goes" about an out-of court-settlement.
A trial date has been set for next May on Jones' accusation that then-Gov. Clinton exposed himself and asked her for oral sex in a Little Rock hotel room in 1991.
Last week, Jones' attorneys resigned in a dispute with her and the McMillans over a possible settlement.
Now Bill McMillan, husband of Jones' personal adviser Susan Carpenter McMillan, says he and Bennett agreed to the conversation on Friday. At the time, Bennett was on vacation in Australia. McMillan says he will present his "demands" to Bennett.
Bennett told CNN that McMillan did reach him Friday, saying, "He saw a window of opportunity for resolving this." Bennett said he insisted on a letter of authorization from Jones stating that McMillan represented her in negotiations, which he received this morning. The president's lawyer has said repeatedly the president would not apologize for something he did not do.
