Chevy Chase resident Brett Kavanaugh could be mistaken for many suburban fathers in Montgomery County.
He has a high-paying government job, and he lives in a small, wealthy community. Like many County residents, he has both an undergraduate and master’s degree from a prestigious university. He coaches his daughters’ basketball games on the weekends.
If you were not following the news, it night be easy to mistake Kavanaugh for just another Montgomery County resident – and not a nominee for the United States Supreme Court.
On Monday, President Donald J. Trump appointed Kavanaugh as an associate justice to the Supreme Court, replacing the outgoing justice Anthony Kennedy. Kavanaugh, who is currently a U.S. circuit judge of the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, is a resident of Chevy Chase and has deep ties to Montgomery County.
