The case has slim chance of success even if it does reach the conservative-leaning Supreme Court, said legal scholars, including some involved in previous Obamacare challenges.
"I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same", Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said in statement after Kavanaugh was nominated Monday.
Some Democrats said Kavanaugh, a more committed conservative, could disrupt precedents like Roe v. Wade, which said women have the constitutional right to abortions.
The perch of a Supreme Court seat can provide additional sources of income. If we look at Justice Kennedy's voting record, we see that he was in the majority most of the time.
Trump "chose the candidate who he thought would best protect him from the Mueller investigation", Schumer said, adding that Kavanaugh has written that a president should not be investigated and could choose not to follow the law if he deemed it unconstitutional. "It wasn't that long ago when it was common for presidents to nominate judges with no prior federal court experience or judicial experience at all".
The statement condemning Trump's nominee, who would replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, was released at 9:46 p.m. EDT, according to screenshots shared on social media. That changed when Thurgood Marshall joined the court. "He has to care more about the court's legacy", Covington explained.

The annual salary in 2018 for a circuit court judge is $220,600, according to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.
But that means other kinds of experience get less emphasis, or none at all.
Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent who caucuses with opposition Democrats, said Kavanaugh would serve as a "rubber-stamp for an extreme, right-wing agenda pushed by corporations and billionaires". Shortly after her 2009 nomination to the Court, Justice Sonia Sotomayor announced plans for a memoir, which was published in 2013.
Speaking to Al Jazeera, Nihad Awad, the national executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said that the Senate must grill Kavanaugh on his views on civil rights and presidential powers. The other three justices are Jewish.
The newly-nominated justice on Tuesday went to the US Capitol to begin meeting with senators ahead of any confirmation hearings to explain his positions.
One possible explanation for the disappearance of geographical, academic and professional diversity is the people who are doing the screening. "A solid conservative who interprets the law, who won't make the law".
Leonard Leo, Vice President of the Federalist Society, has been called the puppeteer behind Trump's court choices, but that narrative overlooks the influence of McGahn, also a Federalist Society member. "So top nominees are credentialed at a young age in the same way to get them on the list later", he said.
Ironically, though, the same Republican lawmakers calling for a swift confirmation pledged to do anything they could to keep President Barack Obama's Supreme Court justice nomination, Merrick Garland, from getting a hearing in 2016, arguing that the decision should be left to the next president.
