Philadelphia and Washington D.C. partner Scott Coffina wrote an article for The Legal Intelligencer titled, “The Perilous Legal Landscape of ‘Bridgegate.’”
In the article, Scott discusses the scandal surrounding allegedly politically motivated lane closures last September at the Fort Lee, N.J., approach to the George Washington Bridge. Scott said that Governor Chris Christie’s bold response to the blown-up scandal likely will be his political salvation–as long as he was truthful. If it is revealed that the governor was in fact involved in this effort to exact political revenge on Fort Lee’s mayor, his presidential aspirations would be flushed, and his second term effectively, if not literally, over. Scott, then discussed the legal minefield now facing those who participated in the frivolous lane closures, including what state and federal charges they possibly could be facing.
