MADISON -- Prosecutors, a conservative group and two unnamed parties have asked a federal judge for more time to review documents that could be made public in a secret investigation into whether Gov. Scott Walker's campaign and right-leaning organizations violated campaign finance law.
 
U.S. District Judge Rudolph Randa halted the investigation in May as part of a lawsuit the conservative group Wisconsin Club for Growth filed challenging investigators' basis for the probe. On June 19 he gave all the parties two weeks to determine what records in the case should remain secret.
 
That made Wednesday the deadline. But on Thursday the parties filed a joint motion asking Randa to give them until July 17. They say they have to review more than 3,000 pages.
