Many Republican voters have been trying to overturn Roe v Wade ever since it passed, electing pro-lifers to office who would then appoint pro-life judges to local and state courts and most importantly the Supreme Court.

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

She is now reportedly receiving treatment, including dialectical behavior therapy, at the same psychiatric facility. Selena Gomez is seeking treatment after suffering an emotional breakdown while in hospital, PEOPLE reports.

New Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in for a second time on Monday night during a ceremony televised on primetime television, and Jimmy Kimmel had a few words to say about it during his "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" monologue later that night. The judges may be forced to conclude "that intervening events have rendered the allegations moot or make remedial action impossible", said Arthur Hellman, an ethics professor at the University of Pittsburgh. Kavanaugh remains a federal judge and the complaints "allege misconduct that occurred while Kavanaugh was on the D.C. Circuit and subject to the Code of Conduct for U.S. Judges". The ethics complaints have still followed Kavanaugh, however, despite the Senate's 50-48 vote to confirm him Saturday after one of the ugliest, most contentious judicial confirmation processes ever.

The existence of misconduct complaints and the procedure can be disclosed, according to the rules, "when necessary or appropriate to maintain public confidence in the judiciary's ability to redress misconduct or disability". The Senate never acted on Garland's Supreme Court nomination. Any member of the public can file a misconduct claim against a judge on the circuit where he sits, she noted.

Complaints made against judges are usually handled by the chief judge. The chief judge of the 9th Circuit asked Roberts to transfer the case for review after The Washington Post reported allegations against Kozinski.
