At the time, there was much criticism of him for engaging in what was seen as kind of abuse typical of the personal injury bar of which he was critical.

He was sitting in a sun room with a copy of “Beowulf”, flipping through it and not paying attention to anyone. I nervously approached and offered that one of my professors clerked for him, thinking it might be a conversation starter. He just growled that yes, he remembered the clerk/professor. The conversation ended there.

Then came the Virginia case against sportscaster Marv Albert. His violation of a sodomy act with a consenting woman was used for leverage against him.

I understand that Judge Bork was a better driver than Senator Kennedy.
