On Oct. 6, 2018, Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as the 114th justice of the U.S. Supreme Court at a private ceremony—a stark contrast from the very public confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee that played out in the preceding weeks. Kavanaugh’s confirmation was nearly derailed after Christine Blasey Ford and several other women alleged that the judicial nominee had sexually assaulted each of them in the 1980s.
