STATEMENT BY VICTORYLAND

-Nothing has changed as a result of the Macon County Circuit Judge’s order today.

-VictoryLand does not operate electronic bingo and has not since August 8, 2010. The Judge’s order dissolving the injunction does not give the Task Force the right to raid VictoryLand.

-If the Task Force wishes to enter VictoryLand’s premises it must obtain a valid search warrant from a neutral and detached magistrate with jurisdiction. Any application for a search warrant must be supported with probable cause, which the Task Force cannot establish.

-We received a copy of Justice Murdock’s statement this afternoon. In our opinion, Justice Murdock’s statement, and the Supreme Court’s statement in its Order dated September 3, 2010 raises more questions than they answer.

-In light of those statements, we renew our request for the appropriate authorities to investigate the issuance of opinions related to electronic bingo, the manner in which those opinions have been procured, and allegations concerning the lack of impartiality of certain members of the Court.

    Please, victoryland knew the judge was going to do it before he told anyone else. That is why they aren't upset about it. The judge gave them enough time to remove all the illegal and incriminating evidence so that the property couldn't be seized. What a joke. Another thing, they released a statement that said the task force can't get probable cause because they don't have electronic bingo anymore. This is reaffirming what the task force has said the entire time. They are admitting that there is probable cause to believe that the slot machines are illegal.
