Christie wins a round in scan­dal-re­lated case

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - NATIONAL & WORLD -

A New Jersey judge on Thurs­day or­dered a new hear­ing on a crim­i­nal mis­con­duct com­plaint against Repub­li­can Gov. Chris Christie in the Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton Bridge lane-clos­ing scan­dal, rul­ing that a lower court wrongly found prob­a­ble cause for the case to pro­ceed.

State Su­pe­rior Court Judge Bon­nie Miz­dol re­versed the mu­nic­i­pal court find­ing of prob­a­ble cause and sent the case back to the lower court for a new hear­ing on the is­sue.

But in her rul­ing, Miz­dol also re­fused a re­quest from Christie’s at­tor­neys to dis­miss the plain­tiff’s com­plaint en­tirely.
