Former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones (left) sued President
Bill Clinton for sexual harassment when he was governor, alleging
he exposed himself to her in a hotel room in 1991. The Jones suit,
which went all the way to the Supreme Court, was ultimately
dismissed by a judge on the grounds Jones could not show
damages. While it was on appeal, President Clinton agreed to      
an out-of-court settlement on this day in 1998. He paid $850,000 
without admitting liability.

Today is known as Veterans Day. It originated with Armistice Day observances marking the anniversary of the 1918 end of World War I, which became an
official holiday in the 1930s. In 1954, the U.S. Congress
officially turned
Armistice Day into Veterans Day.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in Florida say a police dog was shot
and killed while chasing an armed carjacking suspect.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said in social media posts that the K-9 dog
named Fang died early Sunday.

The sheriff’s office said the suspect was apprehended by another K-9 dog at
the scene and arrested. The suspect’s name was not immediately released.

Fang was a 3-year-old German shepherd that performed both patrol and bomb-detection duties.

According to the sheriff’s office, Fang patrolled special events and football
games and "captured some of the most dangerous criminals" in Jacksonville.
