Not enough details given to tell, but the justice system works slowly. In a perfect world (well in a perfect world, the owner would have trained their dog, since pits are very trainable)...<br />
<br />
In a perfect world, the time would be testing the dog and deciding if he can be rehabilitated and rehomed, if there was a medical reason for the bite, finding out the owner's past pet ownership history, etc. But really, it's a lot of the court system "checking" itself, to figure out how to proceed legally.

Anyone who adopts a dog, it should be manditory to bring them to the vet yearly for shots- and anyone who has a past criminal record should be thoroughly examined before they are put ANYWHERE near as loyal as a dog as a pit bull.
What is sounds like is that he was untrained (CLEARLY!) and he saw your coat and thought, "Hey, time to play!". No trained pit would dare do that- most would rather lick you to death. Also, he wasn't trying to push you into the road. Dogs think very simply, their motives are not human, nor are they nearly ever of malice- they work off of fear, playfulness, happiness and protectiveness.
Again, I am very sorry this happened to you. The surplus of backyard breeders spitting out pitbull leads to it being very easy to get your hands on a dog, but not do anything that a dog owner should do with him/her. I would ask whoever is taking care of your report what the HECK is going on, and what is keeping them from making a decision! Two weeks is long enough.
