Dozens of Yale Law School students participated in a sit-in against Yale alumnus and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Monday. The students demanded an investigation of recent sexual misconduct accusations facing the Supreme Court nominee after the New Yorkerpublished a report alleging that Kavanaugh acted sexually inappropriate toward a fellow student at a party.
The protesters dressed in black and filled a hallway of the law school building, with organizerssaying that Kavanaugh poses a “real threat” to the country. Another alumnus, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., joined the protesters and addressed them. Blumenthal serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Other Yale students took buses to Capitol Hill to protest the nomination, which they equated to the nomination process of Justice Clarence Thomas, who was confirmed despite sexual harassment allegations by Yale Law School alumna Anita Hill nearly three decades ago.
