MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Supreme Court has set aside
a restraining order south by Jefferson County Sheriff Mike Hale to
keep the county from cutting his department's budget.

The court ruled that a Bessemer judge did not have the authority
to issue a temporary restraining order, but did say the sheriff can
petition a Birmingham court for an injunction and a decision.

The Jefferson County Commission wants to cut $5.1 million from
the sheriff department's budget because of the county's mounting
financial problems.
