The George Washington Bridge.

As the state’s political insiders try to figure out who John Doe is, is reporting that a judge has delayed the names of the unindicted co-conspirators in the Bridgegate case.

“A federal judge has extended to Tuesday a deadline by which prosecutors must disclose a list of individuals they say joined the alleged conspiracy in the George Washington Bridge lane-closure case but whom the government has not charged,” writes reporter Andrew Seidman.

“U.S. District Judge Susan D. Wigenton’s order on Friday came in response to an 11th-hour court filing Thursday night by one of the so-called unindicted co-conspirators, anonymously identified in court papers as “John Doe,” who asked the judge to block the release of the names.”
