More than 2,400 Law Professors Sign Letter Urging:
The Senate Should Not Confirm Kavanaugh
Irvine – California Congressional candidate for District 45 and University of California at Irvine Professor of Law, Katie Porter joined with more than 2,400 law professor colleagues nationwide and from different political parties to oppose the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.
“I stand opposed to appointing Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court not just as a woman and a Congressional candidate, but as a law professor,” said Katie Porter. “More than 2,400 of my colleagues agree— Kavanaugh does not have the "impartiality and judicial temperament requisite to sit on the highest court of our land."
In a letter to U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Charles Grassley, the law professors write:
We are law professors who teach, research and write about the judicial institutions of this country. Many of us appear in state and federal court, and our work means that we will continue to do so, including before the United States Supreme Court. We regret that we feel compelled to write to you, our Senators, to provide our views that at the Senate hearings on Sept. 27, Judge Brett Kavanaugh displayed a lack of judicial temperament that would be disqualifying for any court, and certainly for elevation to the highest court of this land.
