Paula Jones is expected to break her silence this week and announce in person whether she will seek an appeal in her sexual harassment lawsuit against President Clinton.

The announcement is likely to come from Jones on Thursday, spokeswoman Susan Carpenter McMillan said Sunday, calling the timing "99 percent sure."Carpenter McMillan declined to say whether Jones would appeal. Jones was expected to announce the decision herself, either in the Los Angeles area, where she lives, or in Dallas, where her attorneys are.
