NJDOT Commissioner and NJ Transit Chair Rich Hammer attended a legislative hearing to answer questions about the agency after the Hoboken crash. He said NJ Transit leaders were at an important meeting with the Federal Railroad Administration.
After the prosecution unsuccessfully tried to exclude his testimony, Port Authority Commissioner Scott Rechler took the stand in the Bridgegate trial, sharing his thoughts on the state's star witness, David Wildstein.
Under cross examination at the Bridgegate trial, Bill Baroni testified that Gov. Christie called him his attack dog, citing times the governor told him to punish Sen. Frank Lautenberg and former firefighters' union president Bill Lavin.
The defense moved to have all charges against Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni dismissed, arguing that the prosecution had failed to show any evidence that Port Authority policies were violated. The judge will rule on that motion Monday.
