NEWARK, N.J. – The latest legal bills in the George Washington Bridge lane-closing scandal are in.
The law firm of Gibson Dunn has billed New Jersey roughly $8 million since it was hired to defend Gov. Chris Christie and others from legal challenges stemming from the 2013 lane closures.
Christie hasn't been charged, but his former deputy chief of staff and a top appointee at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey face criminal charges for their involvement.
Gibson Dunn issued a 350-page report in 2014 clearing Christie of wrongdoing.
The firm billed the state about $200,000 from May through August, according to the state attorney general's office.
Gibson Dunn also is fighting a subpoena in the criminal case that seeks interview notes from the report.
