Comey had been pushing for a public hearing. In the lawsuit, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director condemned the process as being powered by "a poisonous combination of presidential tweets and the selective leaking that has become standard practice" for Republican lawmakers.
Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee pledged to provide Comey with a full transcript within 24 hours of his testimony, and said he would be allowed to "make any or all of that transcript public", Comey's lawyer David Kelley told the news agency.
After resisting a November subpoena for a "closed door" session from the House, James Comey tweeted Sunday that he reached a deal regarding a "public testimony".
At the heart of the case is whether the panel should be able to force Comey to testify in secret about the FBI's investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation.
They will likely ask him about the FBI's decisions in 2016 that determined the outcome of a investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's illicit use, while secretary of state, of a private email server where more than 100 classified documents were open to unfriendly governments' prying eyes. A lawyer for Congress, however, argued that committees can conduct investigations however they please and Comey had no right to refuse a subpoena or demand a public hearing. Trump fired Comey in May 2017.

Comey and the Republican lawmakers reached the new agreement the day before lawyers were to appear at a court hearing. Comey initially went to court to fight it.
While Comey says Republicans have agreed to his terms, a ruling has not yet been officially issued.
"It appears Mr. Comey believes he deserves special treatment, as he is the only witness refusing to either appear voluntarily or comply with a subpoena", Goodlatte wrote.
A declaration by the general counsel and parliamentarian for the House Judiciary mafe a case for why Comey's testimony was fair to demand, while also spelling out how Republicans plan to use it to undermine the origins of the Russian Federation probe as well as his decision to end the Clinton email probe during an election year.
