MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A conservative group has filed a motion asking a federal appeals court not to release nine documents linked to a secret investigation of possible illegal coordination between Gov. Scott Walker's 2012 recall campaign and right-leaning organizations.

The Wisconsin Club for Growth, one of the targets of the investigation, filed a federal lawsuit seeking to stop the investigation. A judge in Milwaukee halted the probe in May. Prosecutors leading the investigation have appealed to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.
That court plans to unseal 34 documents in the probe Tuesday. The Wisconsin Club for Growth filed a motion Monday seeking to keep four affidavits and five other documents secret because they reveal the group's internal strategies.
Two unnamed parties filed a motion Friday seeking to keep all the documents sealed.
