Feds turn over McGee documents to state court

The federal government has handed over documents regarding Ald. Michael McGee Jr.'s state case to a Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge during a closed hearing.

Judge Dennis P. Moroney chastised Milwaukee County DA John Chisholm at a hearing Monday for failing to produce the documents he had requested a month ago. The documents were withheld because the feds considered them administrative records. Chisholm attended the hearing, along with U.S. Attorney Steve Biskupic and McGee attorney Glenn Givens.

Moroney is set to review the documents and determine whether they are relevant to the state case. If he decides they are, attorneys will be able to see them and hash out whether they will become part of the public record.
