COLORADO – More than a dozen complaints filed against new Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh are now in the hands of a federal judge in Colorado.

The judicial misconduct grievances were originally filed with the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia where Kavanaugh served before his confirmation last week.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts transferred the complaints to the 10th Circuit Court in Denver so they could be handled by a court that hasn’t worked with Kavanaugh.

The complaints pertain to public statements Kavanaugh made while a nominee for the nation’s highest court and are not related to his conduct on the bench.
