Brett Kavanaugh, the highly controversial U.S. Supreme Court nominee picked by President Donald Trump, has notified Harvard Law School that he will not teach his course as scheduled next semester, the Harvard Crimson reported Tuesday.
In an email obtained by CNN, Catherine Claypoole, the associate dean and dean for academic and faculty affairs at the Harvard Law School, informs students that Kavanaugh "indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered".
Kavanaugh has taught the course "The Supreme Court since 2005" for nearly 10 years at Harvard, but he will not return to the course during Harvard's January Term 2019.
Osler and his fellow Kavanaugh classmate Michael J. Proctor sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this week withdrawing their support for the candidate after signing onto a letter supporting him prior to the nominee's testimony.
The White House did not immediately respond to a Crimson request for comment Monday evening.
Rebecca Zietlow did not sign the letter but she agrees with her fellow professors that Kavanaugh has displayed a lack of judicial temperament that renders him unqualified to serve on the court. The accusations have not been corroborated and he has strongly denied them.
"We believe that Judge Kavanaugh's appointment as an HLS lecturer sends a message to law students, and in particular female students, that powerful men are above the law, and that obstructive, inappropriate behavior will be rewarded", the letter reads. "They likewise should disqualify him from any position of esteem, including lectureships at HLS".
The FBI, meanwhile, is in the midst of its own investigation of sexual assault claims against Kavanaugh, as his confirmation hangs in the balance.
