Joe Hayden Quoted and Justin Walder Mentioned in NorthJersey.com on Christie administration's last-minute move against Bridgegate's three convicted felons - Bill Baroni, Bridget Anne Kelly and David

February 2, 2018
Attorneys Joe Hayden was quoted in NorthJersey.com’s article, “Chris Christie took a parting shot at Bridgegate defendants. Was it necessary?” The article asks several experts option on the final move of Christie's administration to file a series of complaints in Superior Court in Trenton to bar the scandal's three felons from future public jobs.

A 'legal body blow'

Joseph Hayden, an attorney based in Hackensack who specializes in defending public officials in corruption trials, said the court filings were “mean-spirited” and a “legal body blow,” especially to Baroni and Kelly.

“For both of these people, after they pay their debt to society, they want to make a living,” Hayden said. “It’s almost inconsistent with everything we’ve heard about the re-entry of prisoners into society — about people after they pay their debt trying to make an honest living.””

Justin Walder’s name was included in a photo caption “David Samson, center, former chairman of The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey arrives at federal court in Newark with his attorneys including Justin Walder, right, and Michael Chertoff, left.”
