Chief Justice John Roberts has transferred judicial misconduct complaints filed against Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation process to a Colorado-based federal appeals court, according to a new letter Wednesday.

The more than a dozen complaints pertain to statements Kavanaugh made over the course of his confirmation hearings in the Senate and were filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, on which Kavanaugh served for 12 years before he was confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Roberts said in his letter to Judge Timothy Tymkovich, chief judge of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, that he received a request from the D.C. Circuit to transfer the complaints to another federal appeals court.

Roberts notified Tymkovich, nominated by former President George W. Bush, that he had selected the 10th Circuit to “accept the transfer and to exercise the powers of a judicial council with respect to the identified complaints and any pending or new complaints relating to the same subject matter.”

The complaints against Kavanaugh were filed by members of the public with the Washington-based appeals court after the start of his confirmation hearings in September, Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson of the D.C. Circuit said in a statement Saturday.

The complaints did not relate to Kavanaugh’s conduct as a judge, but rather “seek investigations only of the public statements he has made as a nominee” to the Supreme Court, Henderson said.

In his letter to Tymkovich on Wednesday, Roberts said he first received the request from the federal appeals court in Washington to transfer the complaints to another court on Sept. 20.

It’s unclear what will happen next regarding the complaints filed against Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh was confirmed in a 50-48 vote by the Senate on Saturday and took his oaths of office following approval of his nomination.

During his confirmation process, Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct by three women, but he vehemently denied the allegations. A supplemental FBI background investigation did not corroborate two of the accusation.

He testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee first at the start of September, but appeared again for a remarkable hearing before the panel that included testimony from Christine Blasey Ford, who said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school in 1982.

During the latter appearance, Kavanaugh emotionally denied having ever sexually assaulted Ford or anyone else. He was pressed with questions about his conduct in high school, his alcohol consumption, and references in his yearbook at the time.

Kavanaugh participated in his first oral arguments as a Supreme Court justice Tuesday.
