Robert Bork sues Yale club over injuries
Tort reform advocate asks for $1 million after fall
Former Yale Law School professor and one-time Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork filed suit against the Yale Club of New York on Thursday, citing injuries sustained while speaking at the alumni social club last summer.
Bork, 80, who is seeking $1 million in damages, is claiming that he fell while trying to step onto a dais to speak at a June 6, 2006, event hosted by New Criterion magazine. The absence of a handrail or stairs caused him to fall, striking his leg on the dais and his head on a heat register, the suit claims. Over the past year, Bork has suffered "excruciating pain" and undergone extensive medical treatment and surgery to address the resulting hematoma on his left leg, according to the suit.
