Bridgegate: As Jury Deliberates, Defense Lawyer Files Motion for Mistrial reports that the presiding judge in the Bridgegate trial “denied a request to re-instruct jurors on whether they should consider motive in determining the guilt or innocence of two former Christie administration insiders for their roles in shutting down the George Washington Bridge. But she did not rule on a separate request for a mistrial that has been filed under seal. [On Thursday, November 3], defense attorney Michael Baldassare moved for a mistrial in the high-profile political case, but his filing was redacted of any information that would give a clue as to what was at stake. The U.S. Attorney’s office also filed a motion in connection with the request, asking that it all remain under seal.”
