A8 WEDNESDAY. APRIL 1, 1998 NATION THE SALINA JOURNAL * RESIDENTIAL SCANDAL Jones wants her case broadened Lawyers want court to put Lewinsky evidence back into their case By LARRY MARGASAK The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Paula Jones' lawyers asked a federal appeals court Tuesday to put Monica Lewinsky back in their case, suggesting the trial could even be delayed until a separate criminal investigation ends. '; tearing a key decision, the trial judge admonished lawyers in the increasingly contentious case. Angered by a weekend filing by J6nes' lawyers that raised secondhand allegations of sexual assault against President Clinton, U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright ordered lawyers not to nartie any more women in their c<J>ui*t filings who had requested remaining anonymous. T COURTS "The court cannot ignore the fact that the parties have filed a number of contentious pleadings and have perhaps engaged in activities in violation of court orders," she wrote, warning she could impose a wide range of sanctions. The judge also said she was nearing a decision on Clinton's request to dismiss Jones' sexual harassment civil lawsuit but gave no date. There was fallout inside Jones' camp from the decision Saturday by her Dallas lawyers to file court documents that named an Arkansas woman they allege was sexually assaulted by Clinton in the 1970s, even though the woman denies the allegation. The conservative Rutherford Institute, which is paying Jones' legal bills and assisting her case, distanced itself from the decision by saying its lawyers had not been apprised. Had Rutherford's lawyer been consulted, "they would have advised that revealing" the name of the woman "was and is inappropriate," the statement said. Away from the legal maneuvering, a presidential friend denounced Whitewater prosecutors after being summoned back before a grand jury for the seventh time since she followed the Clintons to Washington in 1993. Marsha Scott, chief of staff for White House personnel and a frequent witness in several Clinton controversies, emerged from testifying before the grand jury in the Lewinsky case and decried the prosecutors' work as "intimidating and very frightening and isolating." Scott said the process "harasses people" and that while she and her colleagues are trying to find the truth "I don't feel that necessarily is what they (the prosecutors) are trying to do." us claiborne Canvas Casuals Exclusively At Dillard's! $ 35 "CUTTY" Hi-wall oxford in white, khaki or navy. Women's 7-9 N; 5K-10 M. 5 Freemen, including Kansan, convicted By TOM LACEKY The Associated Press BILLINGS, Mont. — A federal jury on Tuesday found five Montana Freemen, including a Kansas man, guilty of criminal charges in the first trial resulting from the 81-day standoff between the antigovernment militants and the FBI in 1996. However, the jury acquitted Edwin F. Clark, 47, one-time owner of the foreclosed farm that formed most of the Freemen stronghold in rural eastern Montana. Clark's lawyer had argued he was desperate to save the farm and was swept up in events. Four of the Freemen were convicted of being accessories after the fact to the armed holdup of an NBC television news crew attempting to film a story on the Freemen. , They were Steven C. Hance, 48, and his sons, James E. Hance, 25, and John R. Hance, 21, all of Charlotte, N.C., and Jon Barry Nelson, 42, Marion, Kan. All three Hances were also convicted of being fugitives in possession of firearms. Elwin Ward, 57, Salt Lake City, was found not guilty of being an accessory to any crimes committed by other members of the Freemen. But he was convicted of submitting a false claim to the Internal Revenue Service. Ward tried to pay a $143,000 federal tax bill with a bogus Freemen warrant for twice that amount, and requested a refund of the excess. The six on trial were secondary figures in the long Freemen standoff with the FBI on the Montana plains in 1996. The trial of the Freemen leaders is scheduled to open May 26. ' BEST VALUE.
