Legal Scholar Robert Bork Dies

American legal scholar Robert Bork, who was nominated by Ronald Reagan for the U.S. Supreme Court, died on Wednesday morning. He was 85.

  • The Senate rejected Bork’s nomination to the high court following objections from civil rights groups over his views of the federal government and voting rights.
  • Conservatives blamed his failed nomination on partisanship.
  • During the 2012 election, Mitt Romney made Bork the chairman of his Justice Advisory Board.
  • Bork died in Virginia from heart disease.
