John Doe Injunction–Except District Court Order to Destroy Evidence–Back on for Now in Wisconsin

You can read the order here.

This order too may now be brought back to the 7th Circuit, where I believe it will have a fair chance of being stayed on appeal.  It is highly unusual for a federal court to issue an order completely shutting down a state [corrected] investigation.

Regardless of the underlying merits, this is quite an intrusion into state court processes and it may be an appropriate case for abstention.
