Brett Kavanaugh is probably wishing he had purchased the domain that bears his name. But he didn't, and now, instead of being the latest Supreme Court justice's website, is a webpage titled, "We Believe Survivors." "The start of Brett Kavanaugh’s tenure on the Supreme Court may look like a victory for one interest group or another," it declares. "But, more importantly, it is putting a national focus on the issue of sexual assault—and how we as a country can and should do more to prevent it and to support those who have experienced it." It then offers links to resources for survivors of sexual assault.

Turns out Gabe Roth, executive director of Fix the Court, bought a number of domain names three years ago that he "thought might be useful in any forthcoming Supreme Court confirmation battles," as he reveals in a statement. Fix the Court is an organization aiming for Supreme Court reforms including term limits for justices, and a link to it is also included on As Mashable notes, comedian Dave Weasel also recently revealed he bought and redirected it to point to the website for RAINN, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.
