Task Force files motion to reverse Victoryland injunction

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - John Tyson, head of Governor Bob Riley's Task Force on Illegal Gambling,  filed a motion with the Alabama Supreme Court Friday seeking to reverse a preliminary injunction that is keeping a raid from occurring at Macon County's Victoryland gaming center.

Macon County Circuit Court Judge Tom Young declined to lift his injunction in an emergency hearing Thursday, instead giving the plaintiffs 14 days to petition the Supreme Court.

The high court voted unanimously one week ago to nullify the restraining order that protects Victoryland, and sent the case back to Judge Young to reissue in accordance with their opinion.

Tyson says the trial court is "determined to keep its erroneous injunction in place at least until this Court's certificate of judgement issues..." Tyson says the moves made by the other side are stall tactics and that opponents "will no doubt seek further delay by filing an application for rehearing."

The plaintiffs now have until Monday, August 9 at 4:00pm to respond to this motion.
