Ala. Supreme Court says "no" to immediate Victoryland raid

Alabama Supreme Court Justices Alabama Supreme Court Justices

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Supreme Court has refused to let the governor's gambling task force immediately raid Victoryland in Macon County and seize electronic bingo machines.

The state's highest court unanimously turned down a request Wednesday from task force commander John Tyson. Macon County's sheriff and district attorney had argued that there was no emergency that warranted an immediate raid.

Tyson had turned to the Supreme Court before Victoryland closed its electronic bingo casino Monday. Tyson says that diminished the need for immediate relief from the Supreme Court. But he says he will go back to the Supreme Court if the games reopen.

Victoryland owner Milton McGregor plans to reopen Victoryland's dog track Thursday evening, but not its electronic bingo machines.
