As a new sexual misconduct claim involving U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh reverberated around Capitol Hill, the justice and earlier complaints against him that were aired during his confirmation hearing last year were not discussed Tuesday at the formal meeting of the Judicial Conference of the United States.

Chief Judge Merrick Garland of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, who briefed the media following the Judicial Conference’s meeting, said there had been no discussion about Kavanaugh and the procedures in place for misconduct claims against federal appeals judges who are later elevated to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh was confirmed to the high court from the D.C. Circuit.
