MADISON, Wisconsin — The state Supreme Court is considering shutting the public out of oral arguments into three cases involving Gov. Scott Walker.

The court on Wednesday asked attorneys whether the arguments on April 17 and April 20 should be open to the public and broadcast live, closed in part or closed entirely. The court also asked attorneys to meet and reach agreement on a number of other procedural issues, including how to handle documents that have yet to be publicly released.

The cases before the Supreme Court all relate to a John Doe investigation into whether Gov. Scott Walker's recall campaign illegally coordinated with conservative groups.

Unnamed parties have filed two lawsuits challenging the probe's validity. Prosecutors have filed another action seeking to reinstate quashed subpoenas in the probe.
