Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall has filed lawsuits in five counties against electronic bingo casinos using machines he says are illegal slot machines.
Marshall announced lawsuits in Greene, Houston, Lowndes, Macon and Morgan 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.
"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."
