Washington, DC—According to the Associated Press, “One-time U.S. Supreme Court nominee Robert H. Bork has settled a lawsuit against the Yale Club after he fell stepping onto a platform to speak.” The terms of the deal are confidential. Bork had sued for $1 million, including punitive damages.
The following statement is from American Association for Justice CEO Jon Haber:
"Robert Bork today proved that the civil justice system works even for tort reformers who spent their careers trying to undermine it. Bork’s lawsuit underscores how all people deserve to have a fair chance to receive justice."
