NY Times 'Bar Fight' Reporter Opposed Kavanaugh in July

Another of Kavanaugh's Yale classmates, Charles Ludington, described this incident to The Washington Post, saying it occurred after a UB40 concert. Kavanaugh did not want "to say if he threw the ice or not", reads the report. Ludington remembers the incident as being started after Kavanaugh threw a beer at the man, but regardless of what was thrown, the fight culminated with the man, then 21-year-old Dom Cozzolino, going to the hospital after former National Basketball Association player Chris Dudley threw a glass at Cozzolino's ear, causing it to bleed. The Times' story was based on a police report about the incident.

That tweet drew the attention of a number of critics who contended Bazelon's opposition to Kavanaugh presented a conflict of interest for The Times.

The White House had questioned the Times' motivation in writing the story because one of its authors, Emily Bazelon, criticized Kavanaugh in July after he was nominated to the court by President Donald Trump.

Even though the story has dominated the media for several days, but Salman said that he was not aware of Tanushree's allegations. Richa praised Dutta for being courageous enough to open up about the harassment she faced during her time in the films.

Ludington spoke to Cuomo tonight for a chat on what he knew Kavanaugh's boozy conduct, as well as a newly-uncovered police report connecting Kavanaugh to a 1985 incident at a bar. Cozzolino declined to give a comment to The New York Times regarding the report, and has not released any statement on the matter.

Ludington told Cuomo he initially remembered Kavanaugh then threw his beer at the man, but recently found out from the report that there were ice cubes in the thrown drink.

As Ludington recalls, the group were drinking heartily when they spied a fellow bar patron that they felt resembled UB40's lead singer, and were staring at the man in an attempt to figure out if that was indeed who he was. When approached, the man said something aggressive, and Kavanaugh escalated the situation by throwing his drink at him. At that point, Mr. Dudley "took his beer and smashed it into the head of the guy, who by now had Brett in an embrace". Mayorga says she was encouraged by police not to publicly name Ronaldo to avoid retaliation.
