All were filed originally with Kavanaugh's old court, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, the latest last Wednesday, while the battle over his confirmation was still under way.

"This was just basically sending as strong a signal as we could as candidates to the members who are now in to say that we need to take on these issues upon the new Congress coming in", Ms. Slotkin said. Judges who receive complaints have a range of options that include dismissing them out of hand, having local judges investigate them or asking Roberts, in his capacity as head of the federal judiciary, to assign the complaints to judges in a different part of the country.

The allegations - that Kavanaugh drunkenly assaulted Ford in high school - led to an emotional day of Senate testimony by Kavanaugh and Ford, two weeks of controversy, and a reopened FBI investigation that many Democrats found too limited to be legitimate. "Any violation of the Code does not disappear because he is now on another federal court", Gillers said in an email.

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".

As a Supreme Court Justice, Kavanaugh is not subject to the same public scrutiny for misconduct claims as other government officials. Henderson said they all relate to the hearings, not to his conduct as a judge.

Ironically they would ultimately have come under the supervision of Merick Garland, the Supreme Court nominee put forward by President Obama who never got a Senate confirmation hearing.

Last weekend DC Circuit Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson mentioned the complaints in a news release. The chief judge of the 9th Circuit asked Roberts to transfer the case for review after The Washington Post reported allegations against Kozinski. Appointed by President Donald Trump, Kavanaugh's confirmation cemented a conservative majority on the court that could last for years.
