Kavanaugh gave a forceful, emotional denial of those allegations during testimony before lawmakers that some Democrats said showed a lack of judicial temperament.

Kavanaugh is the second justice Trump has successfully nominated to the Supreme Court, following the confirmation a year ago of Neil Gorsuch to the seat left by the late Antonin Scalia.

But Gillers said the complaints "may be found not to be meritorious in the end". "Any violation of the Code does not disappear because he is now on another federal court", Gillers said in an email.

Tymkovich is a George W. Bush appointee who is on Trump's Supreme Court short list.

On Saturday, Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson of the District Circuit, who originally requested the transfer, said in a statement that the court had received complaints about Kavanaugh since the start of his confirmation hearings.

Brett Kavanaugh took the bench with his new Supreme Court colleagues for the first time Tuesday in a jovial atmosphere that was strikingly at odds with the tension and rancor surrounding his high-court confirmation.

The existence of misconduct complaints and the procedure can be disclosed, according to the rules, "when necessary or appropriate to maintain public confidence in the judiciary's ability to redress misconduct or disability". Henderson said they all relate to the hearings, not to his conduct as a judge.

This means that the complaints made against him are effectively confidential and can be dismissed without releasing the details of the complaints to the public. Kavanaugh remains a federal judge and the complaints "allege misconduct that occurred while Kavanaugh was on the D.C. Circuit and subject to the Code of Conduct for U.S. Judges". Garland had been nominated to the Supreme Court by President Barack Obama, but Senate Republicans never acted on the nomination.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of all Likely U.S. Voters say they are more likely to vote in the upcoming midterm elections because of the controversy surrounding President Trump's U.S. Supreme Court nominee.
