Dean of Yale Law School: Classes canceled so students can protest Kavanaugh instead

Doc Thompson

On Tuesday's episode of "The Morning Blaze," Doc Thompson discussed remarks made by Heather Gerken, dean of Yale Law School, regarding her decision to allow some classes to be canceled allowing students the opportunity to participate in the national protest against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Monday.

Doc read Gerken's statement: "The allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are rightly causing deep concern at Yale Law School and across the country.  As Dean, I cannot take a position on the nominee, but I am proud of the work our community is doing to engage with the issues, and I stand with them in supporting the importance of fair process, the rule of law and the integrity of the legal system."

Doc argued that as dean, Gerken should have told students to get to class and learn.  He went on to say that the real world doesn’t care if students are triggered by Kavanaugh. When Yale students become lawyers, their clients won’t be so understanding when the attorney that they hired doesn’t show up to court because they took a day to protest on Capitol Hill, Doc lamented.
