Debra Katz: Reflections on Representing Dr. Ford

April 24, 2019

Katz Banks Kumin partner Debra Katz spoke at a Washington Lawyers’ Committee event, “Representing Dr. Christine Blasey Ford” about her experience representing Dr. Ford before the Senate Judiciary Committee. She emphasized the importance of social movements such as civil rights, #MeToo and labor in empowering people like Dr. Ford to tell her story, and about the long-term effect Dr. Ford’s testimony will have on the discussion surrounding sexual harassment and assault. As Ms. Katz explained,  “I knew the vote was going the wrong way, but the world was going the right way.”

Ms. Katz was joined by Michael R. Bromwich, who also represented Dr. Ford, and Susan Hoffman of Crowell & Moring, who moderated the discussion.
