Bridgegate Defendants are Relying on New Federal Court Ruling for Reversal of Their Convictions

Associated Press reports that Bridgegate defendants Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly are relying on a recent federal court ruling in Massachusetts to help them obtain a reversal of their convictions. They claim, according to AP, the government improperly applied federal criminal law to conduct (realigning George Washington Bridge lanes) that was, at worst, “ill-advised or perhaps even unethical,” and they cite the December 19, 2016, court of appeals decision in US v. Tavares as support for their argument.
