The two law firms that represented Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford are involved in another high-profile sexual assault accusation — this time in Virginia.

The law firm that represented Kavanaugh during his contentious confirmation hearings last fall is representing embattled Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax as he defends himself against allegations of sexual assault.

Meanwhile, Fairfax’s accuser, Vanessa Tyson, has hired the same law firm that represented Ford.
“My firm and I were retained by the Lieutenant Governor on January 17, 2018 with respect to a possible story in a media publication and we are currently representing him as well,” Rakesh Kilaru, a partner with Wilkinson Walsh + Eskovitz, told CNN in a statement.
