    Robert Bork, known for contentious Supreme Court nomination, dies at 85

    Washington (CNN) -- Former federal judge and conservative legal scholar Robert Bork died early Wednesday at his Virginia home, his family confirmed to CNN. He was 85.

    Perhaps best known for his nomination to the Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan in 1987, Bork was rejected for the post after a contentious confirmation battle led by left-leaning groups that opposed his conservative judicial philosophies.
    Bork was quite a controversy, back when Reagan was in office now. In fact, a new term, used to describe a nominee taking a beating during the confirmation process, is being "borked".
