WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - A court hearing will be held in Waukesha Thursday on a lawsuit filed against the state elections' agency.

Governor Scott Walker's campaign and the head of the state GOP want to force the Government Accountability Board to eliminate false and duplicate signatures from recall petitions, without making a complaining party point them out first.

Circuit Judge Mac Davis is not expected to make an immediate ruling. But he could decide Thursday whether to let other groups join the lawsuit.

A petition drive to recall the Republican governor ends next month -- and Walker's camp says it should not be up to them to find improper petition signatures.

Board director Kevin Kennedy has said the law presumes the signatures are valid if they're dated and have a Wisconsin address -- and a more detailed review would require a change in the law and a lot more resources.
