The Latest: Wisconsin court to rule on Walker investigation

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The latest on the Wisconsin Supreme Court's expected decision Thursday in a case involving Republican Gov. Scott Walker's 2012 recall campaign:

12:01 a.m.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court is set to announce whether investigators can resume a wide-ranging & secret probe into alleged election law violations during the Republican Gov. Scott Walker's 2012 recall campaign.

p>Questions approximately the investigation have dogged Walker for months. He's in the first week of campaigning since announcing a 2016 bid for president.

At issue is whether Walker's 2012 recall campaign & several conservative groups illegally coordinated their activities. The recall effort was spurred by Democratic anger over Walker's successful drive to effectively end collective bargaining for most public workers.

Walker & the groups have denied any wrongdoing & called the probe a violation of their free-speech rights.

No one has been charged in the John Doe probe, Wisconsin's version of a grand jury investigation.
