CA suit against Bell officials to go forward

LOS ANGELES On Monday, a judge rejected a bid by the state attorney general's office to put the lawsuit on hold pending the outcome of the criminal corruption case against former city manager /*Robert Rizzo*/ and other city leaders.

The judge hinted that the state was premature in filing its lawsuit, possibly compromising the criminal case.

Eight /*Bell*/ officials are charged with misappropriating millions of dollars in public funds.
