CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — A review of thousands of documents is delaying a state lawsuit aimed at recouping millions of dollars from the founder and leaders of what was once Ohio’s largest online charter school.

Lawyers for the defendants tied to the defunct Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow said they located about 50,000 new documents the state’s lawyers had requested to see.

To review those, the attorney general and the defendants agreed to delay some case deadlines until next summer.

A lawyer for ECOT’s founder says the records weren’t produced late to delay the case. The lawyers won’t comment on details of the documents.
