Lawsuit to reopen Country Crossing thrown out by judge

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - A federal judge has thrown out a lawsuit aimed at re-opening the Country Crossing Casino.

The suit was filed against former Governor Riley and the commander of his gambling taskforce by a bondholder who is losing money while Country Crossing is closed.

A U.S. district judge threw out the lawsuit saying the bondholder did not have a right to sue because the casino closed voluntarily.

Casino developer and Country Crossing owner Ronnie Gilley was one of eleven people arrested in the statehouse bingo bribery probe.
