William Ginsburg, the lawyer who represented former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, has died at 70 in his home in Los Angeles.

His daughter-in-law, Virginia Ginsburg, told the Los Angeles Times that the cause was cancer.

Ginsburg represented Lewinsky when she was accused of lying under oath to protect President Clinton. A medical malpractice lawyer who was friendly with Lewinsky's oncologist father, Ginsburg ultimately was  replaced by Lewinsky's family over concerns with what the Post described at the time as "unpredictable behavior, contradictory statements and constant TV bookings."

In fact, Ginsburg's political legacy is that he was the first person to appear on all five major Sunday news shows in one morning -- a feat known as "the full Ginsburg."
