MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The governor and others may soon face a lawsuit over the raid at the White Hall gambling center conducted by the Governor's Task Force on Illegal Gambling.
Tuskegee attorney Jock Smith says he represents more than 30 employees and customers who were in the center when it was raided last month by armed state police.
Smith, who's president of the Cochran Firm, says he is investigating whether his clients should sue the governor and others over violations of their rights, including having guns pointed at them and being detained by officers.
The head of the task force, David Barber, says the raid was carried out properly with no one getting injured.
He says state police took seven high-powered pistols, including a semiautomatic Intratec 9, from security guards.
