Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens says Kavanaugh's performance during hearings was disqualifying
While once supportive of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, John Paul Stevens is no longer a fan.
The retired Supreme Court justice said on Thursday that he thought Kavanaugh “had the qualifications,” but has changed his mind, The Palm Beach Post reported. Stevens, speaking at a small event in Florida, said that Kavanaugh’s conduct during his Senate Judiciary Committee hearings was disqualifying.

Stevens on Thursday noted that his change of heart wasn’t based on political preference; Palm Beach Post reporter Lulu Ramadan says he even praised Kavanaugh’s judicial record in a book he once wrote. But “his performance in the hearings changed my mind,” he said. Kavanaugh told th

Report Finds Judge Kavanaugh Ruled Against Public Interest in Almost All of His District Court Cases
Even as records about Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s time in the White House remain concealed, much can be learned from his judicial record. We speak with Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen, about their analysis of Judge Kavanaugh’s opinions in split-decision cases, which found that during his 12 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, Kavanaugh decided or wrote an opinion against the public interest 87 percent of the time in split-decision cases dealing with consumer, environmental and worker rights.
