BREAKING NEWS / URGENT: The State Supreme Court upholds Act 10, Voter ID, and the state's domestic partnership registry

MADISON, Wis (WSAU)  - The Wisconsin State Supreme Court upheld Act 10, the state law that limits the collective bargaining rights of state employees.

Wisconsin Club for Growth sues GAB over John Doe probe

WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Club for Growth filed a lawsuit Friday against the state elections' agency, in another effort to permanently halt the John Doe probe into the state's recall elections.  

Group director Eric O'Keefe said the Government Accountability Board exceeded its authority by endorsing a two-year-old probe by state prosecutors. Its suit was filed in Waukesha County Circuit Court.  

A federal judge temporarily halted the John Doe probe twice this month, agreeing that prosecutors were interfering with the group's right to free speech.  

The Club for Growth said it was told to stay quiet, as prosecutors investigated whether that group and others illegally coordinated with the campaigns of GOP recall targets. Those targets included Governor Scott Walker's camp.  

Prosecutors are appealing the rulings from Federal Judge Rudolph Randa. The Club for Growth is concerned that it would be adversely affected by reported settlement talks between special prosecutor Francis Schmitz and Governor Walker's campaign.  

The Walker camp said it had nothing to do with settlement talks to end the federal lawsuit, but they said nothing about the Doe probe itself -- or another state lawsuit which seeks to end it.
