Bridgegate's MIllion-Dollar Legal Fee Bonanza

Fridays are always a good time for a news dump.

Particularly in the dog days of summer.  So an August Friday is actually time to get another pot of coffee.

The Record of Hackensack reported late Friday that the Gibson, Dunn law firm has now billed the State of New Jersey -- that means the taxpayers of New Jersey -- over $6.5 million for its work in connection with the investigation of the Bridgegate matter and ancillary matters affecting Gibson, Dunn's official client, which is the Office of the Governor of the State of New Jersey.

I have previously been very critical of Gibson, Dunn's work in connection with its initial investigative report (released in March 2014 and available here).  The outsized expense of the legal bills should only raise scrutiny as to the quality of the work.
