Robert Bork, hypocrite
Robert Bork ... is seeking $1,000,000 in compensatory damages, plus punitive damages, after he slipped and fell at the Yale Club of New York City. Judge Bork was scheduled to give a speech at the club, but he fell when mounting the dais, and injured his head and left leg. He alleges that the Yale Club is liable for the $1m plus punitive damages because they "wantonly, willfully, and recklessly" failed to provide staging which he could climb safely.
Judge Bork has been a leading advocate of restricting plaintiffs' ability to recover through tort law.
I'm just speechless.
The Wall Street Journal has the lawsuit documents (pdf) and its own commentary.
