MEADVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A judge has ordered a court-appointed board of trustees to turn over all financial records since they began overseeing a 121-year-old amusement park in northwestern Pennsylvania.

Crawford County Judge Anthony Vardaro refused, however, to order a forensic audit of Conneaut Lake Park, saying that may not be necessary, depending on what the financial records show.

Vardaro issued the order Tuesday in response to a lawsuit by the state attorney general's office, which seeks to remove the trustees.

The lawsuit contends The Trustees of Conneaut Lake Park Inc. are $900,000 behind on property taxes, and failed to have adequate insurance when fires burned the park's Dreamland Ballroom in 2008 and its Beach Club in August.

The trustees were appointed by Vardaro in 2007, after another overseer ran the park after its owner was convicted of tax evasion in 1998.
