New Jersey Legislative Committee Releases Interim Report on George Washington Bridge Lane Closures

The New Jersey Legislative Select Committee on Investigation, a joint panel charged with investigating last year’s closure of access lanes on the George Washington Bridge, has released an interim report.  Created in January 2014, the committee retained Jenner & Block Partner Reid J. Schar, co-chair of the firm’s White Collar Defense and Investigations Practice and a former assistant U.S. attorney, as its special counsel. The lane closures, which occurred September 9-13, 2013, created massive traffic delays and prompted questions about alleged abuse of power among government leadership.  The interim report can be viewed by clicking here.
