MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Prosecutors are disparaging indicted House Speaker Mike Hubbard's effort to view their phone records as a baseless fishing expedition by the defense.

The attorney general's office on Wednesday objected to Hubbard's efforts to force prosecutors to disclose conversations with legislators and the media.

Prosecutors wrote in the court filing that Hubbard is seeking a fishing expedition in search of any information to support a baseless claim of prosecutorial misconduct.

Hubbard's defense lawyers have said the information is needed because they suspect improper communications occurred. A talk show host recorded an off-record conversation with one of the prosecutors.

Hubbard faces 23 felony ethics counts accusing him of using his public offices for personal gain. He has pleaded not guilty. He is expected to go to trial in October.
