Hundreds of law professors from across the country have signed a letter to the United States Senate asking lawmakers to reject the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to service as a Supreme Court justice. The Harvard Crimson, The Ivy League's newspaper, broke the story shortly after an email sent to law students announced the decision late Monday evening.

Catherine Claypoole, associate dean and dean for academic and faculty affairs at the law school, told students the news in an email sent on Monday night.

Harvard Law School representatives did not immediately return a request for comment from CNN seeking a specific reason why Kavanaugh felt he could not commit to teaching the course.

According to The Wall Street Journal's Rebecca Ballhaus, Kavanaugh has taught at Harvard for the past decade, since 2008.
