GW Bridge Scandal Documents Stay Sealed

August 19, 2016

NEWARK, N.J. — A Federal judge hearing the case of two former allies of Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal has ruled recent filings are to remain under seal.

U.S. District Judge Susan Wigenton ruled Aug. 18 that unredacted filings in the case could implicate individuals who haven’t been charged in the September 2013 lane closures.

Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly have pleaded not guilty to charges including wire fraud and civil rights violations.

Prosecutors say they closed access lanes to the bridge in Fort Lee to punish that city’s Democratic mayor for not endorsing Christie’s re-election.

The redacted documents hint that the defendants and David Wildstein also targeted Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop. Wildstein has pleaded guilty. The trial is expected to start next month.
