FORT LEE, N.J.—The mayor of the New Jersey town where allies of Gov. Chris Christie created traffic jams last fall has refused a request to be interviewed by a lawyer representing the governor.

Fort Lee Mark Sokolich also was asked to provide documents. The Record reports that Mastro sent a letter back to attorney Randy Mastro on Monday declining the request.

Emails and text messages subpoenaed by a New Jersey legislative committee revealed that an aide to Christie wrote to a Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official and told him, "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee."
