According to the legislative committee formed to investigate the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal, U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman’s office has subpoenaed additional documents pertaining to former Port Authority deputy executive director Bill Baroni’s testimony before the committee in 2013.Though documents would later disprove his claims, Baroni, a former state senator before being appointed to his role with the bi-state agency in 2010, testified at the time that the lane closures were ordered as part of a traffic study.
Baroni resigned in December 2013, just weeks prior to the release of explosive text message and email exchanges between Port Authority officials and members of Gov. Chris Christie’s administration that widened the scope of the scandal.
Last March, Princeton law firm Hill Wallack LLP announced that it had hired Baroni as counsel.
