State supreme court vacates injunction against JeffCo

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - On Thursday, the Alabama Supreme Court vacated the injunction that prevented the Jefferson County Commission from cutting Sheriff Mike Hale's budget - however, the ruling was on a technicality, so Sheriff Hale can renew his request to stop the budget cuts.

In fact, on Friday the case will go to a judge who says that he wants to make a decision before Tuesday of next week. That is the day that the county commission is scheduled to vote on more budget cuts, including laying off more than 200 employees.
