The Alaska Supreme Court has been asked to step into the “Troopergate” investigation. Late Yesterday state court judge Peter Mihalsky denied a motion to stop next week’s release of the investigation’s findings. Witness have refused to respond to subpoenas but the Senate Judiciary Committee plans to issue its report anyway. The state Law department, a group of lawmakers and some Fairbanks citizens sued to challenge the legitimacy of the investigation, saying it is politically motivated. Today the Anchorage Daily News is reporting the group filed an emergency appeal with the Alaska Supreme Court.
