Harvard Law Cancels Kavanaugh's SCOTUS Class After Students Demand an 'Investigation'

Harvard Law School has canceled Brett Kavanaugh’s class on Supreme Court history, which he was scheduled to return to teaching in January.

According to the Boston Globe, the school made their decision to cancel the class, titled “The Supreme Court Since 2005,” after “pressure from students and alumni” forced Kavanaugh to withdraw from teaching the course, which he’d taught since 2008.

“Today, Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered,” Catherine Claypoole, the law school’s associate dean and dean for academic and faculty affairs, wrote in an e-mail to students and faculty.

According to the student newspaper, Harvard’s announcement that they’d canceled Kavanaugh’s course came shortly after the Harvard Undergraduate Council demanded university officials open an investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh before allowing him to return to teaching at the law school.

“The Undergraduate Council stands in solidarity with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, Julie Swetnick, and all survivors of sexual violence. We also stand with members of Harvard Law School who request a full and fair investigation into allegations against Judge Kavanaugh before he is allowed back on campus to teach,” the council wrote in its demand.

Apparently, Harvard Law students are too busy siding with any woman who claims sexual assault to be bothered to stand with justice or the basic premise of "innocent until proven guilty" -- which is a pretty concerning position for our next generation of lawyers and judges.
