No Limit on Gibson Dunn's Bills for Bridgegate Work, State A.G. Says

, New Jersey Law Journal


The $1.1 million in fees billed New Jersey by Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher for its Bridgegate investigation may be just the first installment, acting state Attorney General John Hoffman tells legislators.

    Good grief. Talk about a conflict of interest. Why not just hand over the checkbook? It‘s a joke to claim that the fee discount will amount to actual net savings to the NJ taxpayer, which is easily erased by bringing on an additional associate. And it will only get worse as campaign money outside of NJ will come in to support Christie‘s enemies who will hold press conferences and public hearings as information is leaked from the investigation, which will require GD to invest additional time and resources to examine those issues. Classic politically motivated feedback loop that enriches the lawyers. When this is all said and done, perhaps $50 million will be spent over this political circus, all at the expense of the NJ taxpayer.
