- he Wisconsin Supreme Court has canceled oral arguments it planned to hold next month on three cases related to the secret investigation into Gov. Scott Walker's 2012 recall campaign.
The court had scheduled arguments for April 17 and April 20. But in an order released Friday, the court said ``it is neither legally nor practically possible to hold oral argument.''
The arguments were expected to be awkward, given that much information remains shielded from public view, including the names of unnamed petitioners trying to halt the investigation.
The court said Friday it was "strongly adverse" to closing the courtroom to the public, but it would be impossible to protect the secrecy of the case by holding arguments.
Instead, the court will decide the case based on written filings by attorneys.
