The committee opens the second week of hearings with four civil rights leaders testifying against the nomination of Judge Bork. Mr. Coleman expresses concern over Bork’s criticism of civil rights decisions and his limited view of individual liberties. Andrew Young also opposes the nomination based on Bork’s civil rights views. Barbara Jordan, now a political science professor at the University of Texas, adds a personal element in noting Judge Bork’s criticism of the kind of court ordered “one-person, one-vote” reapportionment that led to her initial election to the Texas legislature. Prof. Marshall bases his objection on Bork’s view of the role of the courts in protecting individual liberties and overcoming racial discrimination. close
