MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A federal judge is easing one restriction and strengthening another on people indicted in the Alabama bingo investigation.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Terry Moorer ruled Tuesday that Democratic state Sen. Quinton Ross of Montgomery can be present when his attorney meets with potential witnesses as part of his case preparation.

Moorer had initially ordered the 11 to have no contact with victims or potential witnesses in the case.

He also ordred them to record all conversations they have with elected officials or candidates. He refused to modify the recording requirement Tuesday, as Ross had sought, and he added a requirement that they must also tape record conversations with lobbyists.

The judge says the changes can apply to the other 10 defendants if they request it.
