MADISON, Wis. -A federal appeals court has released unedited copies of 266 pages of previously redacted documents filed in the investigation into whether conservative groups illegally coordinated with Gov. Scott Walker's campaign.

Seventh U.S. Circuit Court Judge Frank Easterbrook on Thursday denied a motion from two unnamed people to block the release of the documents.

The unknown people argued making the documents public could reveal their identity, their "private papers" and invade their privacy.

Prosecutors and attorneys for the Wisconsin Club for Growth had not objected to the release of the documents.

The investigation that began in 2012 was looking into alleged illegal coordination between the Wisconsin Club for Growth, Walker's campaign and other conservative groups. A federal judge has temporarily put the investigation on hold, a move prosecutors are fighting.
