On May 8, 1991, then-Governor William (Bill) Clinton (defendant) allegedly inappropriately touched and made offensive comments to Paula Jones (plaintiff) while in a hotel room in Little Rock, Arkansas. Jones alleged that she was told by a state trooper that Clinton wanted to see her in his hotel room and she agreed. After arriving, Jones said Clinton engaged in a few minutes of small talk and then “unexpectedly reached over to [her], took her hand, and pulled her toward him, so that their bodies were close to each other.” Jones said that she removed her hand from his and retreated several feet, but that Clinton approached her again and said, “I love the way your hair flows down your back” and “I love your curves.” Clinton then put his hand on Jones’ leg and bent down in an attempt to kiss her on the neck, without her consent. Jones responded by questioning Clinton’s conduct and stating that she was “not that kind of girl,” and shortly thereafter was sitting at the end of a sofa when Clinton sat down and exposed himself to her. Jones said she was “horrified” by the act and left the room. As she was leaving, Clinton allegedly told Jones that “You are smart. Let's keep this between ourselves.” Jones filed suit against Clinton for sexual harassment under federal law, an equal protection violation under federal law, and for state law intentional infliction of emotional distress. The U.S. Supreme Court found no barrier to the legal action under presidential immunity. Clinton filed motions for summary judgment on each of the causes of action.
