The law firm represented the office of the governor in the state and federal investigations that came about following the lane closures in September of 2013 on the George Washington Bridge. The firm released a 350-page report about its findings, which said Christie and the staffers at the top of his administration had no involvement in the closures. The lanes were closed at the request of a former aide for the governor as possible political retribution.

The rate charged by the firm was reduced from $650 per hour to $350 per hour earlier this year.

Bills sent to the state by 10 other law firms that represented employees who were subpoenaed by state or federal authorities were also released to the public on Friday by the general attorney’s office of New Jersey.

With the release of all the bills, the taxpayers in the state are on the hook for $7.87 million due to these investigations.
