Birmingham will not file declaratory judgement against Jeffco D.A.

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Birmingham will not file a declaratory judgment against Jefferson County District Attorney Brandon Falls.

Mayor Larry Langford wanted to file the judgment in order to seek a ruling about electronic bingo.

Falls had originally stated he did not think it would be beneficial to the city to pass an ordinance allowing electronic bingo.

The Birmingham City Council's appointed judge says he would advise city leaders to wait for a ruling from the Alabama Supreme Court.
