LM Stands With Utah Sexual Assault Survivors Filing a Precedent-Setting Petition

LM Calls for Full, Fair, and Informed Senate Hearing

Legal Momentum has been closely following the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, and to the allegations put forward by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and others that Judge Kavanaugh raped and sexually harassed them. Today, Americans turn their attention toward Capitol Hill as Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Prior to this hearing, Legal Momentum was invited to submit a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding the hearing.
