The third woman who came forward with allegations of sexual misconductagainst Brett Kavanaugh has a decade old connection to the lawyer representing the first woman who accused Kavanaugh.

The most recent accuser, Julie Swetnick, came forward on Wednesday to claim that she had witnessed Kavanaugh participate in drugging women and gang-raping them. She also said she was a victim of these gang rapes, but failed to specifically identify Kavanaugh as her attacker. (RELATED: Woman Repped By Avenatti Claims Kavanaugh Attended Gang-Rape Parties)

Approximately a decade ago, however, she was involved in a dispute with New York Life Insurance Co., where she used to work, over a sexual harassment complaint, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The firm that represented her in that case was Katz, Marshall & Banks. One of the named partners of the firm is Debra Katz, the woman who is representing the first woman who accused Kavanaugh, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

Ford and Kavanaugh are scheduled to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday morning.

Katz was also recently discovered to have been in attendance at an anti-Trump resistance rally back in 2017.(RELATED: Kavanaugh Accuser’s Lawyer Caught On Camera: ‘We Are Going To Resist)
