Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. Partner Joseph Cammarata
recently appeared on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom with Bill
Hemmer to discuss his featured role in a historical documentary series
discussing the sexual misconduct allegations against former President
Bill Clinton. The docu-series – entitled “Scandalous”
– is an eight part special that debuted Sunday, January 21st on Fox News.
Partner Cammarata’s appearance on America’s Newsroom focused
on his involvement in the scandal surrounding former President Bill Clinton
and allegations he faced over sexual misconduct, which attracted international
attention. Mr. Cammarata was one of the attorneys who represented Paula
Jones in a lawsuit filed against President Clinton over sexual harassment
that took place while he was the Governor of Arkansas and Ms. Jones was
an Arkansas state employee. The sexual harassment suit and deposition
in the Jones case played a pivotal role in President Clinton’s impeachment
over lying under oath about Monica Lewinsky. Mr. Cammarata was successful
in obtaining a unanimous decision from the Supreme Court of the United
States holding that a sitting President does not have immunity from civil
suits involving private misconduct.
The President Clinton sexual misconduct scandal has seen a resurgence in
the media following a number of high profile allegations of sexual harassment,
assault, and misconduct involving prominent celebrities and political
figures. This includes allegations made against President Donald Trump
and a pending defamation lawsuit filed by Summer Zervos. Similarities
between the two cases – in that they involve lawsuits filed against
a current President – have resulted in national conversations over
critical legal issues, many of which Partner Cammarata has addressed in
recent media appearances – including recent appearances on
HLN’s Michaela and
CNN Tonight with Don Lemon – and the current “Scandalous” docu-series.
Below, you can view Partner Cammarata’s appearance on America’s
Newsroom with Bill Hemmer discussing his involvement in the Paula Jone’s
case. “Scandalous” is scheduled to air Sunday evenings on
Fox News at 8:00 pm ET.
