Etowah County judge will not call governor's task force

ETOWAH COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - An Etowah County judge is refusing to order the governor's anti-gambling task force to intervene in his county's bingo suit.
Developers in Etowah County are hoping to settle the legality of electronic bingo before they open a proposed development near Attalla.

Etowah County District Attorney Jimmy Harp says differences of opinion with the task force and the attorney general's office led him to request the motion.

Judge Allen Millican did give the governor's office and the attorney general's office ten days to file their own motions or be left out of the case.

The trial date is set for April 19th.
