MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Attorney General Troy King is taking over litigation involving Lowndes County's electronic bingo games from the governor's gambling task force. King notified the Alabama Supreme Court and the Lowndes County circuit court Thursday afternoon that he was using his authority as attorney general to control the litigation over the legality of machines at the White Hall Entertainment Center.

The center has been closed nearly two months to prevent another raid by the governor's task force. King is also asking a judge to order the task force to show him its evidence in the White Hall case, including about 100 machines seized in a raid last year. A suit filed against the governor and the task force commander seeks to have the machines declared legal.
