Lewinsky lawyer William H. Ginsburg dies at 70

By

LOS ANGELES -- William H. Ginsburg, who was Monica Lewinsky's lawyer during the sex scandal of the Clinton presidency, has died. He was 70.

His daughter-in-law, Virginia Ginsburg, tells the Los Angeles Times that Ginsburg died of cancer on Monday at his home in the Sherman Oaks section of Los Angeles.

An obituary notice also appeared in the Los Angeles Daily News.

Ginsburg was a medical malpractice attorney and a friend of the Lewinsky family when he agreed to represent her in 1998.

Lewinsky, a White House intern, was facing accusations that she lied under oath about having sex with President Bill Clinton. She avoided prosecution but testified before a grand jury. Clinton was impeached for allegedly lying about his relations with Lewinsky but was acquitted.
