Et tu, Bobby? (June 11, 2007)
Et tu, Bobby? Bobby Bork filed a frivolous lawsuit? Tell me it isn’t so. It is so. So hypocritical and dishonest and unseemly. His frivolous lawsuit is even a matter of public record. In print. In black and white. You could look it up. He actually filed a lawsuit in federal court. And demanded to mulct the defendant for punitive damages.
There he was making the big bucks on the lecture circuit discussing the number of frivolous lawsuits filed in America each year. Bork claims in his frivolous lawsuit that when he tried to approach the lectern, he found no stairs to climb onto the dais which was of “unreasonable height.” The sneer quotation marks are his. That’s a no brainier, as they say. If it is unreasonable to act, don’t act unreasonably. Don’t mount the dais. Everything that happens from that time forward is Bob’s fault.
Bork was defeated for the Supreme Court twenty years ago. He is one of the darlings of the Federalist Society which believes that too many frivolous lawsuits are filed each year.
The federal judge handling his case should show Bobby the respect he does not appear to show himself. Put him out of his misery and shame. Dismiss the lawsuit and address serious matters.
