WASHINGTON (AP) - Harvard Law School says U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will not return to teach in January.
The announcement was made in an email from administrators to law students on Monday. The email says, "Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered."
A Harvard Law School spokeswoman confirmed Kavanaugh's decision to The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Kavanaugh was scheduled to teach a three-week course called The Supreme Court Since 2005. He has taught at the law school for about a decade.
The FBI has reopened a background investigation to examine allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh dating to when he was in high school and college. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
