MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Supreme Court has agreed to hear three cases stemming from a John Doe investigation of fundraising and spending by Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign and conservative groups backing him.

The court on Tuesday accepted a legal challenge from two targets of the probe, a separate lawsuit from those two targets and another, and an action by special prosecutor Francis Schmitz to try to reinstate subpoenas that were quashed by the judge overseeing the investigation.

The court put off accepting a fourth lawsuit by a group challenging the campaign finance laws that are at the heart of the investigation.

The court would likely hear arguments in the coming months and issue a decision by summer.
