Columbia Law School was essentially united in opposition to Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation in 2018 — as the university established a new, mandatory sexual misconduct education initiative, dozens of faculty members signed a petition in The New York Times saying the nominee’s “temperament” alone was disqualifying, and students staged round-the-clock protests.

Now, as Joe Biden prepares to deliver a virtual commencement address at Columbia Law School on Wednesday, he also stands accused of sexual assault (which he, too, adamantly denies) along with previously reported incidents of inappropriate touching. The once-vocal advocates for women’s rights and the “Me Too” movement at New York City’s only Ivy League law school, though, have a starkly different view toward Biden.

The article goes on to state the following:

Instead, the Columbia Law School’s dean, Gillian Lester, issued a statement praising Biden for setting an “example” as a “leader, lawyer, and public servant.” Asked to explain the change in tone on campus, the law school’s press office declined to comment to Fox News.

The report states that communications between Fox News and several Columbia Law School faculty members revealed that they had no plans to criticize Biden, despite the sexual assault allegations against him.

Former Columbia vice dean Avery W. Katz lashed out at Fox News when they mentioned the open letter he had signed demanding Kavanaugh’s nomination be pulled in 2018 amid sexual assault allegations.  When asked if he would oppose Biden’s appearance at the university, Katz responded that the question “didn’t sound like a genuine inquiry” and seemed “argumentative” and declared he was going to add Fox News to his spam filter to avoid future emails from them.
