Lawyers Stake Claim on Jones Case Award

September 24, 1997|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Paula Jones' former lawyers have put an $800,000 lien on any settlement or damages award in her sexual-harassment lawsuit against President Clinton. Attorney Joseph Cammarata said he and Gilbert K. Davis served notice on Jones, Clinton and two insurance companies that they hold a lien for hourly fees. Cammarata and Davis withdrew as Jones' counsel Sept. 8 after disagreeing over a settlement. They are entitled to compensation for their three years of work on the case, Cammarata said in an interview. Susan Carpenter McMillan, a spokeswoman for Jones, said the lien raises the stakes. "Now it's got to be about money or she's going to have an apology but be $800,000 in debt."
