Kavanaugh exits Harvard after students, in letter, ask for rescinding appointment

Hundreds of law professors from across the country have signed a letter to the United States Senate asking lawmakers to reject the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to service as a Supreme Court justice. Four Harvard Law students also called on the law school to investigate Kavanaugh, in a Harvard Law Record op-ed on Thursday, September 20according to The Daily Caller.

Harvard Law School reportedly informed students in an email that Kavanaugh's class will not be offered in January because he "indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course". She hired him to teach at Harvard Law School when she was the dean.

"Judge Kavanaugh is not leadership material and he is not lectureship material".

President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh in July to fill the seat left by retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, and his confirmation to the nation's highest court seemed inevitable until three women came forward to allege that he sexually assaulted them or others in the 1980s. "They likewise should disqualify him from any position of esteem, including lectureships at HLS".

"People are coming together to say, 'This isn't the type of person we want teaching at Harvard Law, '" a law lecturer and 2010 graduate Jessica Lynn Corsi said.

"In addition to the substance of these allegations, Judge Kavanaugh's comportment and testimony during the appointment process have cast further doubt on his fitness to serve on the Supreme Court", said the alumni letter.

Harvard Law students opened up their emails Monday night to find some news concerning the man dominating news cycles for the past few weeks.

Kavanaugh's announced departure from Harvard Law School comes amid an FBI investigation into the sexual misconduct claims against him.
