Kavanaugh Was Questioned by Police After a 1985 Bar Fight, Report Shows

Liz Swisher a former Yale classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh alleges he lied under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee

The Times failed to disclose that the article, co-authored by Emily Bazelon and Ben Protess, was written by at least one individual who has publicly announced her opposition to Kavanaugh. It is hardly the most damning revelation, though it is relevant to Kavanaugh's truthfulness, given that he denied before the Senate ever having gotten aggressive while drinking.

(UPDATE - 1:19 P.M.) In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, a New York Times spokesperson says the paper should have commissioned a newsroom reporter to cover the alleged Kavanaugh incident instead of Bazelon.

Sure, it was a paraphrased statement rather than a direct quote from Ludington himself, but still, interesting that it made it to the airwaves. Chad Ludington, another Yale classmate, told The New York Times the altercation happened while they were drinking at a bar after a concert. Dudley also did not respond to the Times, and Cozzolino declined to comment to the newspaper. His friend Chris Dudley then allegedly threw a glass that hit a 21-year-old man in the ear, according to a witness.

The man noticed Ludington, Kavanaugh and the others looking at him and - according to Ludington - aggressively asked them to stop. Dudley, who played basketball for Yale and then went on to play in the NBA, is cited as having smashed a beer glass over Cozzolino's head.

Earthquake destroys houses on Indonesia's Sulawesi; 1 dead, 10 hurt
Indonesia's meteorological and geophysics agency BMKG issued a tsunami warning after the quake but lifted it 34 minutes later. A search and rescue operation is now underway in Indonesia after a powerful quake and tsunami hit the island of Sulawesi.

Several former roommates and acquaintances have disputed Kavanaugh's claims that he did not drink to excess.

"Brett and I did not socialize beyond the first few days of freshman year".

It's important to remember Kavanaugh wasn't arrested, and Dudley denies the accusation. We talked at night as freshman roommates do, and I would see him as he returned from nights out with his friends. Dudley stressed that while he and Kavanaugh drank together in college, he never saw Kavanaugh black out.

"He wasn't that type of person", Dudley said. The paper said, in retrospect, it should have assigned a newsroom reporter to the story but said it stood behind its veracity.
