Christine Blasey Ford will testify first at Thursday’s event, but other issues remain unresolved
Lawyers and congressional aides have spent days haggling over the terms of Thursday’s hearing featuring Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused him of sexual assault in the 1980s. The judge has denied the allegations.
Republicans have agreed to some of Dr. Ford’s requests; others remain in dispute. Here’s a further look:
What has been settled:
• The hearing will begin at 10 a.m. Thursday. There will be a break every 45 minutes, with additional breaks as requested.

• Dr. Ford will have a dedicated security team and will have two lawyers at the table with her while testifying.

• Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh won’t be in the hearing room at the same time.

• Dr. Ford will testify first, giving Judge Kavanaugh a chance to defend himself against the specifics of her allegations.
