May 4, 2015

Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Eli Richardson provided insight into the federal criminal charges revealed on May 1 against two former government officials related to "Bridgegate," the scandal involving the closing of traffic lanes in 2013 on the New Jersey side of the George Washington Bridge. Eli discusses the Government's aggressive use of particular criminal statutes, including 18 U.S.C. § 666, in the federal indictment against former Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Anne Kelly and former Port Authority Deputy Executive Director Bill Baroni. Eli contends that the Government may face legal challenges to these charges on the grounds that "the prosecutors are taking these statutes to cover conduct that they don't actually cover when properly construed."
