Dane County Judge Orders Release Of Documents

The Judge hearing an open records lawsuit against the Republican-led elections probe has ordered that hundreds of documents be turned over to a watchdog group.

Dane County Judge Frank Remington says Michael Gableman’s office hasn’t made any convincing arguments to withhold the documents.

“This has been much to do about nothing, that these documents do not support the argument that there has been an investigation, much less the conclusions that have been made by the Office of Special Counsel.”

Remington had already ruled in favor of American Oversight. The decision will immediately release those files to the group, likely with some redactions to protect private individuals who filed complaints with Gableman’s office.
