Gambling task force asks Supreme Court to block injunction

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - The governor's anti-gambling task force is asking the Alabama Supreme Court to block a judge's injunction that keeps Victoryland from being raided.

The task force filed court papers saying a speedy resolution is necessary to protect the public from what they call "the evils of gaming".
Attorneys representing the Macon County Sheriff, district attorney and county commission are asking the Supreme Court to leave the judge's order in place. They say the task force is intruding on county officials' authority.
