Robert Bork, former Supreme Court nominee and Nixon puppet in the "Saturday Night Massacre" dies

Robert Bork, former federal judge and Supreme Court nominee, has died, his family confirms to FoxNews.com.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

On October 20, 1973, Solicitor General Bork was instrumental in the "Saturday Night Massacre", U.S. President Richard Nixon's firing of Watergate Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox, following Cox's request for tapes of his Oval Office conversations. Nixon initially ordered U.S. Attorney General, Elliot Richardson, to fire Cox. Richardson resigned rather than carry out the order. Richardson's top deputy, Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus, also considered the order "fundamentally wrong"[14] and also resigned, making Bork the Acting Attorney General. When Nixon reiterated his order, Bork complied and fired Cox, an act later found to be illegal in November of that year in a suit brought by Ralph Nader.[14] Bork remained Acting Attorney General for approximately eight weeks, until the appointment of William B. Saxbe on December 17, 1973.

Rest in peace. A brilliant mind on Constitutional Law, same level as some of the founding fathers, truly a huge loss that most will not even be aware off. I'd take one of him than all of the supreme court justices combined, the man was just simply brilliant.
