WASHINGTON -- Federal prosecutors are now asking for e-mails from Sen. Ted Stevens' wife, Catherine.
The government is looking for conversations between Catherine Stevens and anyone with a U.S. Senate e-mail address.
They want documents that relate to anything of value given to Ted Stevens, his wife, or his daughter, Lily.
Stevens' legal team filed a motion asking for the judge to intervene and prohibit the government from retrieving thousands of documents from Catherine Stevens' law firm, Mayer Brown.
Stevens' defense team is reluctant to turn over the documents and said the prosecution's motion is oppressive.
The case will resume Tuesday after taking Monday off for Columbus Day.
