MADISON, Wis. -Newly unsealed documents in the ongoing lawsuit challenging an investigation into possible illegal campaign activity by conservative groups and Gov. Scott Walker's 2012 recall campaign shed little light on the probe.

The documents were released publicly Wednesday by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, over an objection from conservative group Wisconsin Club for Growth which wanted to keep them secret.

The group argued that since the federal court judge overseeing the lawsuit had not released them yet, the appeals court should not circumvent him. But it acknowledged the documents were likely to be unsealed by the judge.

The newly released material includes portions of arguments made by special prosecutor Francis Schmitz and investigator Dean Nickel as to why they should be immune from being sued by Wisconsin Club for Growth.
