Former Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham wants her successor, Seth Williams, removed from office.

Action News has learned that Abraham and another attorney filed a lawsuit Monday.

They argue that state law bars Williams from remaining in office with a suspended law license.

Williams faces federal bribery charges for allegedly taking $100,000 worth of gifts in exchange for favors.

Last week, Williams said he would stay in his post in an administrative role.

Williams has 20 days to respond to the lawsuit.
