MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A former aide to Gov. Scott Walker will not take any further action to block the release of thousands of documents uncovered during a secret investigation.

Franklyn Gimbel, the attorney for former Kelly Rindfleisch, said Monday that she will not ask the Wisconsin Supreme Court to review a state appeals court ruling last week saying the documents should be released.

Gimbel on Friday also declined the court's offer to review the emails and request that specific documents containing private information be kept secret. Gimbel says there were tens of thousands of documents and going through them all wasn't worth the time or expense.

Rindfleisch was sentenced in 2012 to six months in jail after pleading guilty to doing campaign work while working for Walker when he was Milwaukee County executive.
