Joe Lieberman, the former Democratic vice presidential cadidate, released this statement on the passing of Robert Bork:
"I am saddened to learn of the death of Judge Robert Bork who I first met long ago when he was my professor at Yale Law School. Judge Bork was a brilliant, thoughtful, and charming man whose company I have been privileged to enjoy many times since I came to Washington. He leaves a great legacy of legal scholarship and political essays which will be read, studied, and discussed for a long time to come. Hadassah and I extend our condolences and prayers to all of Bob's family and friends. "
