Trump claims Kavanaugh 'proven innocent' of sexual assault allegations

Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh (L) hugs his wife Ashley after the ceremony. The court will decide what constitutes a "serious or violent felony" under the act.

The Washington Post spoke with University of Pittsburgh law professor Arthur Hellman about the likely next step.

Henderson said in a press release earlier this month that the misconduct claims were filed after Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings, which began on September 4.

The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals Judicial Council will now be handling the ethics complaints.

Kavanaugh said on Monday he was starting his new job without bitterness, seeking to set a new tone after the divisive process. They both stem from a hearing during the confirmation process to address sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

Roberts' letter was sent to Judge Timothy Tymkovich, the 10th Circuit's chief judge.

Complaints made against judges are usually handled by the chief judge.

Henderson is the most senior judge in the D.C. Circuit, and she apparently issued the statement after the chief judge, Merrick Garland, recused himself. It not clear who filed the others.

Brett Kavanaugh is sworn-in as Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court by retired Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy before wife Ashley Estes Kavanaugh, daughters Margaret and Elizabeth, and US President Donald Trump on Octobe

People familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity say the allegations had already been widely discussed in the Senate and in the public realm.

But Gillers said the complaints "may be found not to be meritorious in the end".

According to Deadline, Kimmel joked that Trump is "flying extra high today after the confirmation of beer-battered Brett Kavanaugh, who is now on the United States Supreme Court despite all of the stuff you know about".

Henderson said members of the general public had filed the complaints.

This means that the complaints made against him are effectively confidential and can be dismissed without releasing the details of the complaints to the public.

Roberts referred the case to the appeals court in New York City.
