PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh-area security firm that says it’s still owed $211,000 is challenging a judge’s decision to greenlight the sale of the financially strapped August Wilson Center for African American Culture.

The Post-Gazette reports Friday (http://bit.ly/1tiHFPt ) that International Investigative Services is appealing Allegheny County Judge Lawrence O’Toole’s ruling to the state Superior Court.

O’Toole had held up the sale for a day after the Bethel Park firm objected, arguing it was being shut out while a court-appointed receiver and her assistants were being paid $590,000 and union stagehands were paid more than $33,000 they were owed.

A lawyer for the firm says they’re not trying to derail the sale to the Pittsburgh Foundation, Heinz Endowments and Richard King Mellon Foundation, but the property could face sheriff’s sale if they prevail.
