Chief Justice John Roberts Has Ignored ‘More Than A Dozen’ Judicial Complaints Against Kavanaugh As He Gets Confirmed

United States Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has received more than a dozen judicial misconduct complaints against Brett Kavanaugh the past three weeks but has chosen to ignore them, according to The Washington Post.

Karen LeCraft Henderson, who serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, where Kavanaugh served, forwarded more than a dozen misconduct complaints to Roberts after claiming that the reports were substantive enough that they should not be investigated by fellow judges on the same panel.

“The complaints do not pertain to any conduct in which Judge Kavanaugh engaged as a judge,” Henderson said in a statement. “The complaints seek investigations only of the public statements he has made as a nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States.”

“The situation is highly unusual, legal experts and several people familiar with the matter said,” The Post noted. “Never before has a Supreme Court nominee been poised to join the court while a fellow judge recommends that a series of misconduct claims against that nominee warrant review.”

It’s concerning that Roberts has yet to do anything about the complaints. According to Roberts memoir, it was Kavanaugh himself that helped get him appointed to the Supreme Court when George W. Bush was president.

“If Justice Roberts sits on the complaints then they will reside in a kind of purgatory and will never be adjudicated,” New York University Law School Professor Stephen Gillers explained. “This is not how the rules anticipated the process would work.”
