Court Moves 'Bridgegate' Case Forward, Setting A Date For Christie

Top News of the Week Mom in Colorado Battles DeportationAP

A March 10 date has been set for Christie to answer the criminal summons, though it's unclear if he will have to appear in person. "Ya got believe we're terrible people", Christie said.

Christie's office called McGeady's ruling "a complete non-event".

Given Christie's undeniable history of opposing drug and cannabis law reform - even for medical use - the cannabis community quickly went into a bit of a panic at this possibility.

Chris Christie's hatred of Philadelphia borders on the obsessive.

Bergen County Superior Court Judge Roy McCready had ruled last October that there was probable cause for the complaint to proceed, but the decision was sent back to McCready in January by a higher court judge for a new hearing.

For Christie to go on trial, the case would have to be presented to a grand jury, which would have to hand up an indictment. He says the failure of the Bergen County prosecutor's office to pursue charges shows favoritism on behalf of the prosecutor's office.

Two former Christie aides were convicted of federal charges in November.

"The Phillies suck. Let's just start with that", Christie began his rant on SportsNet New York television on Wednesday night.

Brennan's complaint accuses Christie of failing to stop subordinates from purposely creating traffic jams in 2013 as an act of political retribution against Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich who didn't endorse Christie's re-election bid.

Christie scowled, draped his right arm around Hinson's shoulder and deadpanned, "I'd rather have my teeth drilled than listen to that terrible song, 'Fly, Eagles Fly.'"If they want to take some anger out at me, I'm all-I have no problem with it at all", Christie said of Eagles fans".

Christie has repeatedly denied any knowledge of his staffers' involvement with the bridge closing scheme until the following year.
