GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- For the second time in a week, the ethics hearing into Green Bay alderman Guy Zima has been postponed.

The complaint was filed by alderwoman Barbara Dorff.

Alderman Zima said he needed more time to prepare a defense. He said a local attorney he's planning to work with is out of the country right now and that a second attorney from Madison is currently too busy.

Last week's hearing was postponed when two board-members recused themselves.

Zima declined FOX 11's request for an interview following Wednesday's meeting.

In her complaint, Dorff alleges Zima has made hostile and degrading statements at public meetings, thereby violating the code of conduct.

"I simply spent many hours looking at meetings and taking clips of those meetings and tying those clips to exact parts of the code of conduct that he is violating. This is coming from Alderman Zima's inappropriate behavior, pure and simple. I will not stand for it anymore," Dorff said.

The ethics board agreed to re-schedule the hearing for Monday, April 30.
