Anti-Gambling Laws

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange says the state's litigation against bingo casinos will go forward despite the governor's order that local law enforcement should take over gambling enforcement. Strange said today that he had been assured by the governor's legal adviser that the executive order issued by Bentley had no impact on the state's pending litigation… Governor Robert Bentley signed an executive order saying local district attorneys and sheriffs should be in charge of enforcement. The attorney general's office said appeals to the Alabama Supreme Court involving the seizure of 1,600 gambling machines from Victoryland casino will move forward. Strange's office has asked justices to stay a judge's order to return the machines to VictoryLand by mid-November. Strange said he expects the ongoing case to help clarify the law.
