Ruling due next week on Christie in bridge case complaint

NEWARK, N.J. - A New Jersey judge is scheduled to rule this week on whether there's probable cause to proceed with a criminal case against Republican Gov. Chris Christie over the George Washington Bridge lane-closing scandal.
           
Municipal Court Judge Roy McGeady was to have ruled Thursday, but courts were closed due to a snowstorm.
           
McGeady is scheduled to announce his ruling at a hearing this Thursday.
           
He ruled in October there was probable cause for former firefighter William Brennan's misconduct complaint against Christie to proceed. But a higher court judge disagreed and sent it back to McGeady for reconsideration.
           
Brennan's complaint accuses Christie of failing to stop subordinates from purposely creating traffic jams in 2013 to punish a Democratic mayor who didn't endorse Christie.
           
Two former Christie aides were convicted in November.
