The Jones Case

 Legal Issues

Judge Grants Clinton's Motion For Summary Judgment

Judge Susan Webber Wright delivered a 40-page ruling dismissing all three counts in Paula Jones' sexual harassment and employment discrimination lawsuit against President Bill Clinton. Saying Jones' allegations fell "far short" of what was required under the law to support her claim of outrage, Webber Wright ruled there were no "genuine issues" worthy of a trial.

Clinton's Response To Jones' Filing

The lawyer for President Bill Clinton, Bob Bennett, filed about 200 pages of legal arguments and testimony Friday, March 20, in response to an earlier filing by Paula Jones' attorneys (see below) and in support of Bennett's motion for summary judgment.

The main brief seeks to rebut the arguments by Jones' lawyers that the case should go to trial as scheduled May 27. Included in these papers are more excerpts from the depositions of Kathleen Willey, Gennifer Flowers and troopers in Clinton's security detail in Arkansas.

Clinton's Lawyer Moves To Dismiss Jones Lawsuit

On February 17, 1998, President Bill Clinton's private attorney, Bob Bennett, filed a summary judgment motion to have the Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit dismissed. Bennett's motion to dismiss Jones' suit was filed well ahead of a March 13 deadline.

His motion reads, in part, "Plaintiff [Jones] has failed to produce evidence showing the existence of essential elements of each of her claims. Therefore President Clinton is entitled to judgment as a matter of law."
