NEWARK - A federal judge in New Jersey has ruled that a list of unindicted co-conspirators should be made public in the case of two former allies of Gov. Chris Christie charged in the Bridge-Gate George Washington Bridge lane-closing scandal.
U.S. District Judge Susan Wigenton said Tuesday that it is in the public's interest for the government to disclose the list. The ruling came after a lawsuit filed by media organizations, including The Associated Press.
Gov. Christie's former deputy chief of staff Bridget Kelly and former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official Bill Baroni were indicted last spring on wire fraud and civil rights deprivation charges. They're accused of creating traffic jams near the bridge to punish Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich for not endorsing the governor during his re-election campaign.
Kelly and Baroni deny the charges. Former Port Authority official David Wildstein pleaded guilty in the scandal and agreed to work with federal authorities.
Gov. Christie hasn't been charged.
