Judge gives Ala A-G Monday deadline on gambling inquiry

Montgomery, AL – - A judge says Attorney General Troy King
still must tell him by Monday where he stands on the electronic
bingo investigation by the Governor's Task Force on Illegal
But Circuit Judge Robert Vance Jr. of Birmingham has put on hold
the remainder of the order he issued last week involving the task
The governor and his task force had asked Vance to put the
entire order on hold while they appeal to the Alabama Supreme
Court. Vance declined to go that far in an order issued Tuesday.
The case stems from the task force's raid last year on the White

closed for more than a month to prevent a second raid.
