Ex-Christie aide backs off on appeals in 'Bridgegate' case

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) A one-time associate of former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is backing off his efforts to appeal his convictions in the George Washington Bridge lane-closing case.

NJ.com reported Saturday that Bill Baroni's lawyers have filed legal papers with the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia. They seek to have his case returned to U.S. District Court "as promptly as possible" so a new sentence can be imposed and he can begin serving that sentence.

Baroni is still deciding whether to seek review by the U.S. Supreme Court, the lawyers noted in the filing, but they said such a move would not interfere with his desire to "obtain a new sentence."

The filing made Friday night comes several weeks after the appellate court upheld most of the convictions against Baroni and Bridget Kelly. They were convicted in 2016 in the alleged plot to cause traffic jams to punish a mayor for not endorsing Christie's re-election bid.
