Kavanaugh was a federal appeals court judge when President Donald Trump appointed him in July. In all, 83 complaints were filed against Kavanaugh by “lawyers, doctors, professors and concerned citizens, among others,” according to Chief Judge Timothy Tymkovich of the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
