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."

As the world's largest trial bar, the American Association for Justice (formerly known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America) works to make sure people have a fair chance to receive justice through the legal system when they are injured by the negligence or misconduct of others—even when it means taking on the most powerful corporations.
