A Robert Bork Biography

Mr. Hehn has posted a new biography of Robert Bork.

Robert Bork is most famous for being rejected as a nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1987. 14 years before that he also had a not-very-beloved role in the Watergate scandals of Richard M. Nixon.  (Bork was the only guy Nixon could find to fire special prosecutor Archibald Cox, who was a little too hot on Nixon’s trail at the time.)

Bonus factoid: Robert Bork sued the Yale Club for $1 million after he fell while stepping up to a speaker’s platform in 2006. He settled the case for an undisclosed sum a few years later.

That’s Bork above, in 2007.  See our full Robert Bork biography >>
