Victroyland Attorney speaks out

SHORTER, AL (WSFA) - An attorney for Victoryland owner, Milton McGregor, says over the next two days, McGregor's legal team will decide whether to fight the task force either in state or federal court or both.

Mark White says the strategy is to get their machines in a court of law to determine if they're legal or not.

There will be a push to show Macon County passed a constitutional amendment legalizing electronic bingo gaming.

White says the crackdown sends a negative image of Alabama to the nation.

If the task force comes back without a court order, White says they will be treated as burglars and authorities will be called.

Meanwhile, Governor Riley says the state will provide assistance to the laid off workers.
