Still trying to quash the Troopergate investigation

Per the Anchorage Daily News:

Lawyers seeking to shut down the Legislature’s investigation of Gov. Sarah Palin this afternoon filed an emergency appeal with the Alaska Supreme Court.

They’re asking the state’s high court to decide by the close of business today whether it will hear their appeal.

Just the five legislators this time; Attorney General Talis Colberg isn’t joining in this action (so far).

Update, 5:00 PM: The Alaska Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case & issue a decision no later than next Thursday, a day before the October 10 deadline to release the investigative report.
