Bork's Slip and Fall Case

Former Judge Robert Bork, a longtime critic of the tort system, is now a plaintiff in a slip-and-fall case in which he is seeking a million dollars in damages. The New York Times has an editorial: Bork v. Bork, N.Y. Times, June 14, 2007:

Since we believe in the tort system, when properly used, all we would ask is whether Mr. Bork’s unfortunate experience at the Yale Club has led him to re-evaluate any of the harsh things he has said in the past about injured people, much like himself, who simply wanted their day in court.
