Robert Bork

Biography

American lawyer, judge and former Attorney General of the United States, 1973-74; the author of several books including "Slouching Toward Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline," 1996 and "The Tempting of America: The Political Seduction of the Law," 1989, which became a bestseller.

Bork earned his undergraduate and law degrees at the University of Chicago. He went into private practice until 1962, and then taught at the Yale Law School from 1962-75 and 1977-81. From 1982-88, he served as Circuit Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and, in 1987 he was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court by then-President Reagan. In 1998, he took on Microsoft Corporation as the legal representative for rival Netscape, a move that surprised those who knew of his conservative views regarding government intervention in the marketplace.
