DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The push to force Dallas County District Attorney Susan Hawk out of office is moving forward.

The county and district attorney from Ellis County Patrick Wilson filed a lawsuit, today, aimed at forcing Hawk out.

The lawsuit began with a complaint from fired DA administrator Cindy Stormer.

She said she was wrongly fired by Hawk.

The lawsuit asks the state to take control of the Dallas County DA’s office.

Hawk’s attorney sent CBS11 a statement that reads in part:

We remain confident that at the end of the day district attorney Hawk will be cleared of the accusations filed by a former, and fired, employee.
