"We are interested in making sure that the judicial confirmation process can be as fair and thorough as possible", law school student Dianne Lake told the New Haven Register. Classes were canceled to make time for all the protesting.

Colorado lawyer John Clune also criticized the Senate Judiciary Committee for its handling of his client, Deborah Ramirez, and accused it of refusing to meet his client's demands.

When asked if Ramirez should appear at Thursday's scheduled hearing at which Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh's first accuser, are scheduled to appear, Collins reportedly said, "No, because there hasn't even been an interview of her yet and I think that needs to take place first".

Marie Follayttar Smith, of Mainers for Accountable Leadership, said her group of 17 Mainers, including Bowdoin College students, was joined by hundreds of activists to urge Collins to vote "no" on Kavanaugh.

On Monday, the president's Supreme Court nominee Mr Kavanaugh rejected the accusations of sexual assault when he was young and said he would not withdraw from consideration for the high court. Ramirez acknowledged gaps in her memory because she had been drinking at the party.

Kavanaugh has denied all of the sexual misconduct allegations that he has been accused of. Quartz reported that the students are planning to head to Washington, D.C., this week.

In Washington DC, a bus carried protesters to the Supreme Court and Senate buildings to demonstrate.

Just spoke with #JamesRoche who was Yale roommate of Brett #Kavanaugh. Members of the U.S. Capitol police arrested them one-by-one and led them away.

But Tuesday morning, Clune posted two messages on his Twitter account suggesting that she wants to be heard.

Inside Higher Ed reports that the law school is investigating whether Chua and Rubenfeld, who are married to each other, engaged in misconduct.

Yale Law professor Amy Chua cruised to wide attention several years ago for a supposedly satirical book about shaping her kids into child prodigies with brutal hazing.

The Post sought Tuesday to speak with more than 30 Yale Law School and Yale College graduates who signed letters in support of Kavanaugh last month. A spokesperson for the law school told the ABA Journal that the existence of an investigation could neither be confirmed nor denied.

"Students have worked with the Law School administration and faculty so that the community can come together as a whole to discuss this important moment in our country's history", Gerken wrote. Roche said. "We talked at night as freshman roommates do and I would see him as he returned from nights out with his friends".
