Judge Brett Kavanaugh will not be teaching at Harvard Law School for the Winter Term, according to the Washington Post.

In an email sent to law students, the university informed them the embattled U.S. Supreme Court nominee would not be returning, writing, “Today, Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered.

According to a report in the Washington Post, “Hundreds of Harvard Law graduates had signed a letter calling on the school to rescind Kavanaugh’s appointment as lecturer at the school, following sexual misconduct allegations.”

“Now, more than ever, HLS must send a clear message that it takes sexual violence seriously,” the Washington Post reports the letter as saying. “The accusations against Judge Kavanaugh, including those by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, are credible and grave. They seriously call into question his character and morality.”
