Mr. Thomas, a black conservative, was named by President George H. W. Bush to replace retiring Justice Thurgood Marshall. From the outset, the nominee sparked fierce opposition from many Democrats, women’s groups and black organizations, which opposed Mr.

Thomas because of his inconsistent record on abortion and civil rights.During already contentious Senate confirmation hearings, the turmoil escalated further when it came to light that Anita F. Hill, a law professor, had repeatedly made accusations that Mr. Thomas had sexually harassed her a decade earlier. The allegations were initially ignored, setting off a storm of outrage and demands to delay the confirmation process.

This led to a nationally televised hearing in which Mr. Thomas and Ms. Hill testified before a Congressional panel, often giving salacious details of events. In spite of the acrimony, the Senate confirmed Mr. Thomas by one of the narrowest margins ever for a Supreme Court appointment, making him the second black American to serve on the court.
