A FORMER lover of ex-US president Bill Clinton has lost her effort to revive a defamation case against his wife, Senator Hillary Clinton, and two of the former president's top aides.
Former cabaret singer Gennifer Flowers came to public attention during the 1992 presidential campaign when she described a 12-year affair with Clinton, who later acknowledged a relationship with her.
Ms Flowers charged that during the 1992 campaign Hillary Clinton had helped co-ordinate campaign attacks against her. She also said James Carville and George Stephanopoulos made defamatory statements about her.
She had said in the suit that Senator Clinton, Mr Carville and Mr Stephanopoulos falsely accused her of lying about the affair and of doctoring tape recordings of her telephone conversations with Bill Clinton.
She filed suit against the three in 1999. A Nevada appeals court dismissed the suit in 2003, and Ms Flowers appealed to the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to revive the legal action.
The 9th Circuit ruled yesterday that Ms Flowers named Senator Clinton too late in the suit, after the passage of a four-year limitation. "Thus, her claim against Clinton is barred," a three-judge panel wrote.
As for the top aides, the court said: "Flowers's failure to present evidence of actual malice is fatal to each claim against Carville and Stephanopoulos".
Who is paying who?
This is a joke right?? I mean expecting to win against a Clinton in the 9th. circuit? Why didnt she try flapping her arms and flying?
The 9th Circus Court should be over ruled. Again.
I don't think Hillary cares much for Jennifer.
On the other hand, I agree this was a foolish decision since it would wind up with the 9th circuit, a bunch of Clinton whores.
*grins*....wasn't it during their Barbara Wawa interview before he was elected that Hildabeast started with her vast right wing conspiracy stuff when Flowers was mentioned by Wawa?
I think she sued in Nevada because it has one of the longest statutes of limitations for defamation. And that is where she was living at the time she brought suit.
Gennifer, please go away.
Who wrote this story a vindictive 7 year old ?
Why don't they just throw her under the bus again Clinton and his cronies already ran over her once !
I remember the "PENTHOUSE" photos [I saw them while reading the articles]. Jennifer. don't go away. Please stop over.
Well okay. Let me rephrase that: Gennifer, please go away to Pzldr.
That's creepy.. who is that guy?
Hillary's "alleged" lover and the "alleged" father of Chelsea.
Chelsea's real dad.
