Kobe Bryant and the woman accusing him of rape are both in a Colorado courtroom for a key hearing.

Bryant arrived first at the courtroom in Eagle. His 19-year-old accuser came in through a fire exit later, accompanied by her lawyer. It's the first time Bryant and the woman have been in the same room since their encounter at a Colorado hotel last summer.

The woman is to testify about her sex life. The judge will determine if those details can be introduced at trial.

Defense lawyers say the woman's sexual conduct around the time of the alleged assault should be admitted. They say it could show that her injuries may have been caused by another sexual partner. Prosecutors failed in their earlier bid to limit defense questioning.
