Thomas famously referred to the hearing as "a high-tech lynching for uppity Blacks," when he testified about Hill's claims before the Senate Judiciary Committee. With no direct evidence presented to resolve the conflict, the hearing essentially boiled down to Thomas's word against Hill's, along with her credibility.
