Some of the women in the CNN interview questioned why Ford waited so long to come forward.
"Its sole objective is to bully Dr. Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family", Katz said in a statement.

As Mr Trump's pick, Brett Kavanaugh has to first approved in the Senate before he can take his seat - but before that vote can happen, he has to be approved by the judiciary committee, where Prof Ford may testify.
That's according to a person briefed on the matter who isn't authorized to discuss it by name.
Terms of their appearances are still being negotiated, but several details have been resolved. Victims of sexual assault often decide not to file a police report or come forward at all because they fear they won't be believed. Some 36 percent told Fox they believe her accusation that he attempted to hold her down and strip her clothes off during a high school party, while just 30 percent believe his refutation that he wasn't even at such a party, much less that he attempted to assault anyone. Kavanaugh has repeatedly and categorically denied the accusation.
Republicans on the committee and Ford's lawyers had disagreed on numerous counts.
The Republican-controlled Senate judiciary panel has struggled on how to proceed with Kavanaugh's nomination.
Hours later, multiple outlets including Politico and The Daily Beast reported the hearing would take place on Thursday, citing sources familiar with a phone call between the committee and Ford's lawyers.

The question now is whether anyone at the White House, Kavanaugh or at the Senate Judiciary Committee was involved in the harebrained scheme to accuse a classmate of Kavanaugh's under the bonkers theory Ford got the identity of her attacker "confused". "I'm providing a notice of a vote to occur Monday in the event that Dr. Ford's attorneys don't respond or Dr. Ford decides not to testify".

Meanwhile, Republicans viewed Ms Ford's requests as a way to delay voting on President Donald Trump's nominee.
Kavanaugh has said he wanted to testify before the committee to refute the allegation, and Ford's attorneys have told the committee that she has accepted their request for testimony.
"Dr. Ford accepts the Committee's request to provide her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct next week", the lawyers wrote to the committee.
The lawyers say they are "hopeful that we can reach agreement on details" of Ford's appearance.
