MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Any raid on the bingo operation at Victoryland in Macon County has been postponed pending a decision by the Alabama Supreme Court next week.

Victoryland has until Monday at 5 p.m. to file additional information to support the temporary restraining order that stopped Friday morning's planned raid by the governor's Illegal Gambling Task Force.

Then, the Task Force has until 5 p.m. on Tuesday to reply to Victoryland's Monday filing.

WSFA 12 News has information that indicates the Supreme Court will likely rule on Wednesday of next week on whether the raid can go on.
