Supreme Court stays ruling on Greenetrack machines

The Greenetrack gaming facility in Greene County is confirming that the Alabama Supreme Court stayed a lower court's order Friday which sought the return of machines seized by the State during a May 31 raid.

On August 3 Special Circuit Court Judge Houston Brown declared void the search warrant he signed that gave the State permission to seize Greenetrack's machines. Judge Brown concluded the State did not have probable cause for the warrant and thus ordered the property returned.

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange promised an appeal and was granted the stay Friday afternoon.

At 11:30am, several hours prior to the Alabama Supreme Court actually issuing a stay in Greenetrack's case, WSFA 12 News and WSFA.COM erroneously reported that the court had overruled Judge Brown's order.

The report, incorrectly based on another Supreme Court ruling concerning the town of Boligee vs. Greene County Water and Sewer Authority, was retracted fully on-air and online by WSFA 12 News.
