ATMORE, Ala. (WPMI) Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange has filed suit against the Poarch Band of Creek Indians to close their casinos in Atmore, Montgomery and Wetumpka.
The lawsuit was filed while Alabama State Troopers served a search warrant aimed at closing the VictoryLand casino in Macon County. Strange said in a release that VictoryLand is operating in "open defiance" of laws against gambling.
This is the latest in a long-running effort by the state to shut down what it calls illegal gaming operations.
Both the Poarch Band of Creek Indians and VictoryLand operators say their machines are legal.
