TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

A judge will allow a plaintiff in a Tuscaloosa voter fraud case will be able to use a list of nearly 400 voters she claims were bribed for their votes.

James Anderson is the attorney representing that plaintiff, Kelly Horwitz. She is the incumbent Tuscaloosa City School Board member for District 4.

Shortly after the August municipal election, Horwitz alleged that some voters cast their ballots illegally and may have been bribed with the promise of free drinks. Her legal team also contends many of these people are from University of Alabama fraternities and sororities.

A trial date for this case has been set for Oct. 31 but Anderson may ask the judge for more time.
