Unindicted Co-Conspirators’ Names Ordered Released in GW Bridge Case
Bruce S. Rosen convinced a federal judge on May 10, 2016 to order release of unindicted co-conspirators’ names in the upcoming criminal trial over George Washington Bridge lane closures. U.S. District Judge Susan Wigenton in Newark said the public’s right of access outweighed the unnamed parties’ privacy interests. She also said the people on the list likely are public employees, or elected or appointed officials.
