Judge orders prosecutor to turn over files in Alvarez case
(AP) - A former state government official accused of sexual assault has won a court order seeking prosecutors' files on his case.
Albert Alvarez's attorneys sought a court order requiring the Middlesex County prosecutor to turn over his files from the case involving allegation against Alvarez brought by Katie Brennan. A Superior Court judge approved the request Friday.
Brennan, chief of staff at the state's housing mortgage agency, came forward in a newspaper account last fall saying Alvarez sexually assaulted her while they worked to get Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy elected in 2017.
Alvarez denied wrongdoing and wasn't charged.
He's scheduled to appear in front of a legislative committee on Tuesday that's investigating hiring practices in Murphy's administration.
Alvarez worked as chief of staff at the Schools Development Authority until October.
