According the above article, Christie won’t be sued in bridge scandal.
Christie has said he had no knowledge of the planning or execution of the lane closings until well afterward, and a taxpayer-funded report by lawyers hired by Christie arrived at the same conclusions. The Democrat-controlled legislative panel in an interim report on its inquiry didn’t find any proof of a direct connection between the governor and the lane closures.
The two lawsuits made several claims, including deprivation of constitutional rights to due process and freedom of movement, official misconduct, conspiracy and racketeering. One case was filed by several people who said they were late for work because of the traffic jams; the other was filed by several limousine and taxi companies.
Besides Kelly, others targeted in the lawsuits include former Christie campaign chairman Bill Stepien, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and former Port Authority officials Bill Baroni and David Wildstein. Baroni and Wildstein both resigned in the wake of the scandal; Kelly was fired and Christie cut ties with Stepien.
Discovery & depositions may provide evidence that Chris Christie was directly involved in the bridge gate scandal.
It does not make sense that Bridget Kelly & others involved would shut down lanes unless, they were given orders to do so by someone up the chain of command.
It also does not make sense that Chris Christie didn’t ask Bridget Kelly why she shut the lanes down before he fired her.
