MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Supreme Court has given
several Macon County officials until Monday afternoon to respond to
the latest attempt by Gov. Bob Riley's gambling task force to get
permission to raid Alabama's largest casino.

Task force commander John Tyson said Friday the Supreme Court
appears to be taking his latest plea seriously for permission to
raid the Victoryland casino at Shorter, which has more than 6,000
electronic bingo machines.

Tyson filed an emergency appeal Thursday night asking the
Supreme Court to overturn an injunction by Macon County Circuit
Judge Tom Young that has blocked a raid since March.

The Supreme Court informed attorneys in the case Friday that they have until 4 p.m. Monday to respond to Tyson's filing.
