A federal appeals court has unanimously rejected a conservative group's request to reconsider a ruling last month tossing a lawsuit challenging an investigation into possible illegal campaign coordination.
The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday rejected the request from Wisconsin Club for Growth to rehear the case after a three-judge panel last month sided with investigators.
The court overturned a ruling that halted the probe into Gov. Scott Walker's 2012 recall campaign and more than 29 conservative groups. The judges said legal issues around the investigation should be resolved in state courts.
The John Doe investigation remains on hold because the state judge overseeing it also effectively stopped it in January. That case is pending before the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
