Tort reformer Robert Bork sues Yale Club

You know what IOKIYAR means? "It's okay if you're a Republican." I said yesterday that I hate double standards. Hypocrisy is right in there too. Take a look at this little notice from Think Progress:

Claiming the Yale Club of New York City “wantonly, willfully, and recklessly” failed to provide easy to climb staging, conservative uber-activist Judge Robert Bork is suing the club for $1,000,000 in compensatory damages, plus punitive damages from a fall Bork sustained while mounting the dais at the club for a scheduled speech. Bork, an infamous tort reform advocate, hasn’t always been such a fan of suing for punitive damages, at least when other people do it.

And the press calls John Edwards hypocritical for caring about the poor while rich. They ought to pounce on this. (But they won't.)
