Bridgegate List Delayed Due to Appeal

The lane closures over the George Washington Bridge in September 2013, known as “Bridgegate,” continues to be a thorn in New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s side. Yesterday, at noon, a list of unindicted co-conspirators was due to be released. Hours before, Judge Thomas L. Ambro of the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted an anonymous man, known only as “John Doe,” a request to delay pending an appeal. The man argued that if his name is on the list it could severely damage his reputation and career. The hearing for the case is now set for June 6. The list was filed under seal and according to sources, a group of media organizations demanded the release of the names because it is believed they are public officials who are alleged to have abused their power and violated the public trust. So far, Anne Kelly, Christie’s former deputy chief of staff and Bill Baroni, Deputy Executive Director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey both pleaded not guilty to the conspiracy charges. Their trials are set for September in Newark. Former Port Authority executive David Wildstein, pleaded guilty to the charges last year and is cooperating with prosecutors.
