What 2 Women Who Clerked for Kavanaugh Really Think of Him
By Kelsey Harkness and Lauren Evans – August 29, 2018
When Sarah Pitlyk went to clerk for Judge Brett Kavanaugh on the D.C. Circuit Court, she found herself in a unique situation: Between the time she interviewed for the job, and went to begin the clerkship, Pitlyk had given birth.
“At the time,” Pitlyk told The Daily Signal, “it was unprecedented.”
“I was the first of his clerks who had ever had that kind of familial obligation to balance with the clerkship, which is a tremendously rewarding job, but also a very difficult job,” Pitlyk, who clerked for Kavanaugh at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit from 2010-2011, said. “Who knew if he was going to tolerate it from me?”
Pitlyk is one of three former female Supreme Court clerks The Daily Signal interviewed about their experience clerking for Kavanaugh, who President Donald Trump nominated to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who retired from the Supreme Court. She wasn’t the only one to find herself in a “unique” personal position during her clerkship—a sliver of the legal profession that, at the time, was dominated by men.
