NEWARK—A federal judge today denied efforts by an unnamed "John Doe" to keep the names of others tied to the Bridgegate scandal from being disclosed.

The matter was immediately appealed in advance of a Tuesday noon deadline requiring prosecutors to publicly release the list of "unindicted co-conspirators" involved in the politically-motivated 2013 George Washington Bridge lane shutdowns.

A consortium of news organizations—including NJ Advance Media—has been fighting in court to reveal the names—those who federal prosecutors said had conspired in the bridge scheme, or in the subsequent cover-up, but had not been charged.

1. There Are Two Lists Of Names....

out there waiting for release. The first is the list of unindicted co-conspirators. Those are people who participated in the planning of the GWB caper but either made no overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy or against whom there is insufficient evidence to proceed with prosecution at this time. The second is a list of people with knowledge of the conspiracy who took no action to prevent it. They'll both be released. Should be a fun time in the Garden State over the next couple of weeks. So this is what a can of worms looks like!

7. Are you saying that a news outlet is doing investigative research and suing for the truth?

To quote Downtown Abby's Mrs. Hughes, "Well. You could knock me down with a feather."

Amazing! Imagine, searching for the truth!!

What is this, the 20th century, or something???
