MADISON, Wis. -A federal judge has rejected a request by five media groups to unseal the entire record in a lawsuit filed by Wisconsin Club for Growth against prosecutors investigating the conservative group, Gov. Scott Walker's campaign and others.
U.S. District Judge Rudolph Randa ruled Thursday against the media coalition, saying releasing the documents would subject those involved to "unwanted public scrutiny."
Randa's order came hours after a 7th Circuit Appeals Court judge made public more than 250 pages of material in the case after prosecutors and Wisconsin Club for Growth did not object.
Two unnamed people objected to the release of those documents and the entire record. Randa ordered them to work with both prosecutors and Wisconsin Club for Growth to determine within two weeks which records should remain secret.
