3. New Christie documents: New documents released by the law firm New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie hired to probe the George Washington Bridge lane closures show how his staff reacted to the unfolding scandal.

4. IGM hearings: Hearings about the planned auction of Interstate General Media -- the parent company of the Inquirer, Daily News and Philly.com -- continue today in Delaware Chancery Court.
