Court documents released Thursday night by the Ohio Attorney General's office show a preliminary ruling issued by a special three judge panel ordered Michael Sciortino be suspended from the Mahoning County Auditor's office.

Now, the Attorney General is becoming impatient waiting for a final ruling.

The Attorney General wants Sciortino suspended pending the outcome of his trial on public corruption charges in the Oakhill Renaissance case.

The documents, part of a complaint compelling the Special Commission to issue a ruling, show the panel made the order June 23rd. Sciortino then filed applications to contest that ruling and have it dismissed.

The Attorney General's office is asking the panel to make a decision on those applications and issue a final ruling.

A spokesperson from the Ohio Supreme Court tells 21 News there is no time frame for when a decision will be made and that the process is halted now while the Attorney General's latest motion is considered.
