SHORTER, Ala. (AP) - Attempts to raid two multimillion-dollar
Alabama bingo operations appear to have been put on hold till next
The Alabama Supreme Court said Friday it will receive arguments
on the planned raid at VictoryLand in Shorter on Monday and
Tuesday. And a Conecuh County judge said it would be Monday before
he reviews a request for a search warrant to raid Country Crossing
Gov. Bob Riley's antigambling task force had assembled more than
100 state police at both sites in the early morning Friday, but
those raids fizzled amid legal concerns.
Riley did win an Alabama Supreme Court ruling Friday that held
electronic bingo in Ashville to be illegal.
