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.
