Parties in John Doe lawsuit seek delay of document release

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Prosecutors, a conservative group and two unnamed parties want more time to review documents that could be made public in a secret investigation into whether Gov. Scott Walker's campaign and right-leaning organizations violated campaign finance law.

U.S. District Judge Rudolph Randa halted the John Doe investigation in May as part of a lawsuit filed by the conservative group Wisconsin Club for Growth, challenging the basis for the probe. On June 19, Judge Randa gave all parties two weeks to determine what records in the case should remain secret.

That made Wednesday, July 3 the deadline. But on Tuesday, the parties filed a joint motion asking Randa to give them until July 17, noting they have to review more than 3,000 pages.
