However, an federal appellate court judge has taken some of the heat off of Randa by ordering the release of a couple more court documents:
A federal judge on Tuesday ordered that a small set of documents be made publicly available in the lawsuit over an investigation into cooperation between conservative groups and the campaign of Gov. Scott Walker.The fact that the John Doe investigation is being kept in the news - along with Walker's dismal record on job creation and high level of corruption and cronyism - must be playing hell with his poll numbers, judging by the fact that he is launching attack ads this early into the campaign. That is not the behavior of an incumbent that is expecting to win reelection.
Judge Diane Wood of the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago ordered the court clerk to make available to the public two attachments to a motion that the Wisconsin Club for Growth had wanted to seal.
Her order did not say when the records would be available or make clear what they contain. They appear to total 14 pages, according to online court records.
