NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A judge has given New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and other defendants more time to file a response to two lawsuits related to lane closures at the George Washington Bridge.

Christie was among several defendants scheduled to respond to the lawsuits by Friday. Others include former Christie campaign chairman Bill Stepien, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and its former deputy executive director, Bill Baroni.

One lawsuit was filed by several people who said they were late for work because of the traffic jams caused by the closures. The second lawsuit was filed by several limo and taxi companies.

A judge wrote last week that he must decide other issues, such as whether the two lawsuits will be consolidated, before the defendants will be required to respond.
