Gawker Sues New Jersey’s Christie for Files on Fox’s Ailes

Gawker Entertainment LLC sued New Jersey Governor Chris Christie over his refusal to release records of communications between him and Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes.

Christie’s office invoked executive privilege in denying a request by the New York-based blog. The governor had declined to release any correspondence, call log or schedule entries and written messages reflecting contacts between the men, according to the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey, which represents Gawker. Today, Christie’s office confirmed a dinner meeting between the governor and Ailes.
