NEWARK, New Jersey — The two former allies of Gov. Chris Christie charged in the George Washington Bridge lane-closing case are in court seeking documents the governor's office wants to keep confidential.

Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly are accused of orchestrating the closures of access lanes to the bridge in September 2013 to punish a local mayor for not endorsing Christie's re-election.

Their trial on wire fraud and civil rights counts is scheduled for mid-May.

Kelly is Christie's former deputy chief of staff and Baroni was a top appointee to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Both claim the U.S. attorney's office has refused to provide information, including communications between Christie's office and the Port Authority.

Christie, who hasn't been charged, is seeking the Republican presidential nomination.
