Bingo battle now focused on Greenetrack

GREENE COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - The battle over electronic bingo continues.

Governor Bob Riley's task force on illegal gambling wants the State Supreme Court to strike down an order protecting operations at Greenetrack.
     
Circuit Judge Eddie Hardaway issued the order on Friday after state troopers went to Greenetrack to inspect the casino's electronic bingo machines. Hardaway scheduled a hearing on the matter for June 28th.

Task force commander John Tyson calls the order a "sham" to protect illegal gambling interests in Greene County.
