Tort for Tat

June 8, 2007

It’s been a while since we heard from Robert Bork, the wingnut judge whose failure to reach the U.S. Supreme Court — a fact for which all sane Americans should thank God daily — opened him up to a lucrative second career on the moral-crank rubber chicken circuit — a less palatable version of William Bennett, if you can imagine such a thing.

Well, what do you know! Bork, the staunch advocate of “tort reform” — wingnut code for robbing Americans of their right to sue for damages when their lives and property are harmed by big business activity — recently took a spill at the Yale Club of New York and is now suing for $1 million in punitive damages. Too bad “rank hypocrisy” isn’t legal grounds for dismissal.
