Ninth Justice: The Fight for Bork

Ninth Justice is the story of a vigorous band of underfunded, determined, 'movement' conservative activists who labored tirelessly for the U.S. Senate's confirmation of Judge Robert H. Bork after President Ronald Reagan nominated him to the Supreme Court in July 1987. It chronicles the organizational efforts primarily of Patrick B. McGuigan (Coalitions for America) and Daniel L. Casey (American Conservative Union)-both intensely Republican, devout Catholics, ardent admirers of the nominee-who understood from the first moment of the battle that they were involved in the most significant political confrontation of their lives.
