MONTGOMERY, AL - VictoryLand reopened Friday after a circuit judge ruled that
the governor's anti-gambling task force could not raid or seize the casino's
6,400 electronic bingo machines.
Circuit Judge Tom Young, whose jurisdiction includes Macon County, issued a
temporary restraining order stating the commander of the governor's task force,
John Tyson, does not have authority in Macon County because he is Mobile
County's district attorney. The order limits Tyson's authority to Mobile County
Tyson said "This order is a poster child for corruption. It attempts to provide
protection for all of the illegal casinos in Alabama."
The day before VictoryLand reopened the Macon County sheriff and district
attorney watched a demonstration of the games by a gambling engineering expert.
They declared the games are legal.
