The American Bar Association has reportedly ceased reviewing its “well-qualified” rating of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, but it’s still open season in the Twittersphere.

The ABA had publicly stated that it would reevaluate Kavanaugh’s rating in light of the sexual assault allegations that had been brought to light during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, as well as his conduct during those hearings. But an anonymous ABA official told CNN this week that the review process was closed once Kavanaugh was confirmed to the bench. The ABA website states, ”Per the published policy and historical practice of the Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary, once a justice or judge is confirmed, the Standing Committee’s rating process is closed.”

Kavanaugh supporters and detractors took to Twitter to air their views:

During the committee hearings, the then-DC Circuit judge touted his ABA rating. “For 12 years, everyone who has appeared before me on the DC Circuit has praised my judicial temperament,” Kavanaugh said. “That’s why I have the unanimous, well-qualified rating from the American Bar Association.”
