The former attorney general under President Eisenhower pointed to the ideological diversity of Eisenhower Supreme Court appointments. He suggested that the Judiciary Committee would be practicing “court packing” to require ideological conformity of the otherwise qualified Judge Bork.

A panel representing police organizations then testified in opposition to Bork. The witnesses expressed concern over Bork’s opinions in labor law cases that apply to police officers.

At the conclusion of testimony, a few of the committee members made brief closing remarks (15 minutes). Senator Kennedy commented on the importance of the hearings and complimented Senator Biden on his chairmanship of the committee. Senators Heflin and Thurmond also spoke briefly. close
