MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A Wisconsin appeals court has ordered some records released relating to a secret investigation that reportedly involves Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign and conservative groups.
The court order issued Thursday does not include documents that would identify the people who are being investigated, specific information sought by subpoena or search warrant or other details of the investigation.
The documents include attorneys’ requests to stop the investigation, a response from the special prosecutor and other procedural filings.
Attorneys for three unnamed petitioners also had asked the appeals court to suspend the so-called John Doe probe in Milwaukee, Iowa, Dodge, Dane and Columbia counties or send their request directly to the state Supreme Court.
The District IV Court of Appeals rejected both of those requests.
