ATLANTA - The state ethics commission has delayed ruling on several complaints against Gov. Nathan Deal, whose attorney is seeking guidance from the agency to resolve two of the issues.

The Georgia Government and Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission met Friday and was expected to resolve five complaints against Deal, including three dating back to 2010 filed during the gubernatorial election. Staff attorney Elisabeth Murray-Obertein told commissioners most of the complaints were ``close to disposition'' and could be resolved at the agency's July 23rd meeting.

On two complaints, Murray-Obertein said Deal's attorney, Randy Evans, was seeking an advisory opinion from the ethics commission as to how to proceed. Evans told commissioners the opinions could be ``used as a vehicle to solve the problem and not kick the can down the road.''
