Alabama’s Attorney General Steve Marshall has presented a lawsuit against casino operations in the state.
US.- Several gaming operations were exposed by Alabama’s Attorney General Steve Marshall. According to local press, the official has filed lawsuits in Greene, Houston, Lowndes, Macon and Morgan counties against electronic bingo casinos. The demands are based on the current gaming legislation in Alabama that limits the operation of slot machines.
“It is the responsibility of the Attorney General to ensure that Alabama’s laws are enforced, including those laws that prohibit illegal gambling,” Marshall said in a press release. “Through multiple rulings in recent years, the Alabama Supreme Court has made it abundantly clear that electronic bingo and the use of slot machines are illegal in all Alabama counties.”
Marshall asked “circuit courts in those counties to grant preliminary injunctions to stop what Marshall says are unlawful gambling operations while the lawsuits are pending. He asks the courts to declare the casinos public nuisances and permanently bar them from operating games with the machines,” according to alabama.com.
Meanwhile, a daily fantasy sports (DFS) legislation did not get the approval last Friday in the Alabama legislature, and the Senate has left it under “Further Consideration” label. On Wednesday 17, the Senate voted on the bill, which now will face a longer process. Alabama is debating the future of a potential legal daily fantasy sports sector.
