Over the weekend, Judge Brett Kavanaugh was officially confirmed to the Supreme Court. His confirmation followed a dramatic few weeks as the Senate was faced with sifting through sexual assault allegations made against Kavanaugh.
Following a seventh FBI investigation and a Senate vote, Kavanaugh was officially confirmed in a bipartisan vote of 50-48. Now, Judge Kavanaugh is already making history.
On Sunday, Justice Kavanaugh appointed an all-female law clerk staff. According to the New York Times, Kavanaugh met with all four of his new clerks as a debriefing for the arguments he will hear in court this month.
The Times reported, "Justice Kavanaugh met with his four law clerks, all women- a first for the Supreme Court- in chambers that had until recently been occupied by Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., who has moved to Justice Anthony M. Kennedy's old chambers."
Kavanaugh's decision to have an all-female law clerk staff is not surprising, considering his prior promise to find ways to solve the underrepresentation of women among law clerks.
During his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Kavanaugh said, "A majority of my 48 law clerks over the last 12 years have been women. In my time on the bench, no federal judge- not a single one in the country- has sent more women law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court than I have."
According to reports, the four women on Kavanaugh's law clerk staff include Kim Jackson, Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy, and Sara Nommensen.
During the interim period before Kavanaugh's confirmation, many far-left Democrats claimed that Kavanaugh would be anti-women in his approach to the Supreme Court. Now, many have pointed out that he is proving the exact opposite of that- he is empowering women.
