Court Favors Sen. Clinton in Calif. Case
LOS ANGELES (AP) - A lower court must reconsider whether to remove Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton from a civil suit over a lavish 2000 Hollywood fundraising gala, an appeals court ruled Tuesday.

Businessman Peter F. Paul, who bankrolled the event, alleged that he was misled by Clinton and others into underwriting the event. He believed her husband, former President Clinton, would work for his company Stan Lee Media Inc. in return.

Paul sued when Clinton didn't work for him. He's seeking general, special and punitive damages.

Paul, a three-time convicted felon, claims that he spent more than $1.9 million on a star-studded gala that attracted Cher, Diana Ross, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston.

1. Gotta Love the Fiction-Writing Talents
of my California bar brethren.

Sounds like Paul is burning because he couldn't piggyback on Big Bill's sex appeal. In any case, this lawsuit sounds like claptrap.

2. I bet that you couldn't get an "oral contract" from "businessman" Paul
that was enforceable . . . I wouldn't trust his word if he said I was about to breathe . . .
