By Alan Collins

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The Alabama Supreme Court may clear the way today for a raid by the governor's anti-gambling task force on Victoryland in Macon County.

Birmingham attorney Mark White, who represents Victoryland track owner Milton McGregor, said Friday the state's highest court will have a ruling on the case this afternoon. Currently, a court order has barred the governor's anti-gambling task force from raiding Victoryland.

Meanwhile, Rep. John Rogers, (D) Birmingham, told FOX6 News Friday morning the Alabama Legislative Black Caucus has schedule a massive rally August 28 in front of the Alabama Supreme Court. Rogers said the Alabama Supreme Court is controlled by Gov. Bob Riley and the caucus was committed to defeating court members who are running for office in November.
