The state Attorney General's office received a five-month extension Monday in its case to remove the Conneaut Lake Park Board of Trustees.

A Crawford County judge granted the request to allow the Attorney General's office to complete discovery, which will focus on Conneaut Lake Park's finances and management, spokesman Joe Peters said. Attorney General Kathleen Kane aims to oust trustees of the park and reorganize the board, which failed to keep fire insurance on its Diamond Ballroom, destroyed in a fire in 2007, and fell $900,000 behind in paying property taxes.

The board members have denied wrongdoing.
