BIRMINGHAM (WBRC) - Defendants in the bingo corruption case filed a large number of motions Friday.

Victoryland owner Milton McGregor is asking for a third time to dismiss charges against him in the case. McGregor and ten others, including four lawmakers and lobbyists, were accused of working in a conspiracy to provide and accept bribes in order to pass an electronic bingo bill.

Slocomb Senator Hari Ann Smith asked to sever her case from the others.  McGregor has made a similar request.

Talladega Senator Jim Preuitt asked to postpone his trial date from April 4.
