Lawyer: Christie Won't be Sued in Bridge Scandal

Wednesday, 17 Dec 2014 07:13 PM

A lawyer says two lawsuits filed in the apparently politically motivated lane closings of the George Washington Bridge will move forward without New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as a defendant.

A federal judge consolidated the cases, one of which named Christie as a defendant along with a former Christie aide who sent an email incriminating her in the closings last year.

Attorney Barry Epstein says a new lawsuit will be filed in place of the consolidated complaints, and won't name Christie as a defendant because there's been no evidence the Republican governor was involved in the closings.

The bridge scandal has been a source of speculation over how it might affect Christie's political future.

Christie is expected to announce within months whether he will run for president in 2016.
