Lawyer Kevin Marino says the state panel must produce the emails it claims proves that a subpoena to Christie campaign manager Bill Stepien is not a fishing expedition.

At a hearing to quash the subpoena Tuesday, legislative lawyer Reid Schar said newly received documents show Stepien knew more about the traffic-blocking plot and cover-up than originally revealed.

Marino says any additional evidence must be produced.

Meanwhile, Mercer County Superior Court Judge Mary Jacobson gave Schar until Monday to explain why the state panel may be unable to grant immunity in the case. Replies are due a week later.
