An assault allegation leveled at Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh fell apart Thursday after the alleged victim said it never happened.

Dabney Friedrich, who currently works as a U.S. District Court judge in Washington, D.C., told The Washington Times that Kavanaugh did not grab her and slam her against a wall in 1998 when the pair was out for drinks with colleagues, as an anonymous letter writer claimed.

Friedrich said she dated Kavanaugh for a brief time in 1998, but he was never physically abusive with her.

"To the extent the attached letter is referring to me as the 'friend [who] was dating him,' the allegations it makes are both offensive and absurd. At no time did Brett ever shove me against a wall, including in an 'aggressive and sexual' manner," Friedrich wrote to the Times. "When we dated, Brett always treated me with the utmost respect, and we remain friends to this day. I have never observed (nor am I aware of) Brett acting in a physically inappropriate or aggressive manner toward anyone."

It was reported Wednesday a mother claimed her daughter watched as Kavanaugh "shoved her friend up against the wall very aggressively and sexually."
