After an emotional couple of weeks surrounding Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court, Harvard Law School announced to their students that the nominee will not be returning to a class that was set to start in 2019, according to the Harvard Crimson. Four Harvard Law students also called on the law school to investigate Kavanaugh, in a Harvard Law Record op-ed on Thursday, September 20according to The Daily Caller. Bustle has reached out to both Harvard Law School and the White House.

"Will Harvard Law School take seriously the credible allegation of Kavanaugh's sexual assault against a young woman before he is allowed to continue teaching young women?" wrote the students. Kavanaugh is a graduate of Yale College and Yale Law. "They likewise should disqualify him from any position of esteem, including lectureships at HLS".

Hundreds of Harvard Law alumni signed a letter urging the university to remove Kavanaugh as a lecturer at the school, though the letter had not been submitted to administrators by the time of Claypoole's email, local media reported.

'Chargegate': Apple users complain that new iPhones fail to charge
If you want a faster charge rate, be prepared to pay $49 for the charging head and at least $19 for the cheapest one-meter cord. Several complaints about the XS and XS Max failing to charge have also been posted on Apple's discussion forum on its website .

Harvard must be relieved that he withdrew instead of them having to fire him, since reportedly over 800 Harvard Law graduates have signed a letter calling on the school to dump Kavanaugh. A quick search no longer lists Kavanaugh among the listed faculty, though Kavanaugh's original page can still be seen on the Internet Archive.

Trump on Friday ordered a one-week probe by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) into the allegations against the judge.

The U.S. Senate may yet confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, but he should stay off basketball courts for now when kids are around.
