There but by the grace of God . . .

Robert Bork, former nominee to the Supreme Court, filed suit against the Yale Club of New York City. The interesting thing here is that Bork was a strong reporter of tort reform. In this suit based on a fall as he approached a dais to speak at the club, he is even seeking punitive damages. I suppose this is a reminder to us all that we should avoid being judgmental over things we have not experienced ourselves. Bork was judgemental of all those plaintiffs filing suits and supposedly getting unjustifiable windfalls (see article in Herald Leader Opinion Section for June 20, 2007). Now, he is one of those plaintiffs.
