Yale Law School Embroiled In Kavanaugh Allegations | Connecticut Public Radio

He is facing allegations that while at high school he attempted to rape a fellow teenager, Christine Blasey Ford.

Former students, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, told the Guardian Chua's husband Professor Jed Rubenfeld, also provided unsettling advice to law hopefuls. "He did not say what the look was and I did not ask". She said that the allegations were of "enormous concern" to her and the school.

One source said that in at least one case, a law student was so put off by Chua's advice about how she needed to look, and its implications, that she decided not to pursue a clerkship with Kavanaugh, a powerful member of the judiciary who had a formal role in vetting clerks who served in the United States supreme court.

Chua reportedly said that her daughter would not tolerate any inappropriate behavior.

And now students at Kavanaugh's alma mater, Yale Law School in New Haven are speaking out against the confirmation process. She said that when she confronted a student holding the flag, he quipped: "Hey, your panties might be here".

A student said it's possible the couple were giving suggestions based off of observations of Kavanaugh and not direct orders.

"I have no reason to believe he was saying, 'Send me the pretty ones, ' but rather that he was reporting back and saying, 'I really like so and so, ' and the way he described them led them to form certain conclusions", the student added.

Chua has cancelled all of her Yale courses this year and is reportedly in the hospital with an undisclosed illness. Rubenfeld and Chua were not known to give similar advice to students seeking jobs with other judges, The Guardian reports. He hires only the most qualified clerks, and they have been diverse as well as exceptionally talented and capable.

As a federal judge on the DC circuit court of appeals, clerking for Kavanaugh was a coveted spot, and many went on to clerk for Supreme Court justices, as well.

"While we can not comment on individual complaints or investigations, the Law School and the University thoroughly investigate all complaints regarding violations of University rules and take no options off the table", Gerken wrote. As I wrote in the Wall Street Journal, he has also been an exceptional mentor to his female clerks and a champion of their careers. Rubenfeld confirmed to newspaper that the university informed him it's conducting an "internal review" of allegations against him, but the school would not comment on the matter.

Meanwhile, another statement signed by 48 members of the Law School faculty Friday urges members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to allow an independent investigation of Ford's allegations.

Yale has not specified what the misconduct might be.
