New Jersey lawmakers on Friday released hundreds of pages of communications related to the scheme to close several lanes leading onto the GeorgeWashingtonBridge in September, a move that caused four mornings of traffic gridlock, months of investigations into whether the move was politically motivated and ultimately the gravest challenge to Gov. Chris Christie’s political career.

According to New York Times, the release of documents, which included emails and texts between top officials in the Christie administration and officials at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, came one day after Mr. Christie apologized for the role his top aides and associates played in the episode.

It was not immediately clear if there were new revelations in the mountain of documents released on Friday.

Earlier, at least six residents in New Jersey are bringing a class-action lawsuit against high-ranking government officials.

The suit was filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court of New Jersey, attorney Rosemarie Arnold said, and targets key players in the saga, including Christie, his former aide Bridget Kelly, and two former Port Authority officials who resigned in December over the controversy, the Associated Press reports.
