Leading Conservative Activist Seeks Punitive Damages

Judge Robert Bork, one of the fathers of the modern judicial conservative movement whose nomination to the Supreme Court was rejected by the Senate, 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 $1million 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.   (June 8, 2007)
