DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) -- Country Crossing in Dothan has delayed its reopening while the courts sort out whether the Alabama's attorney general can take over the Governor's Task Force on Illegal Gambling.
Attorney General Troy King announced Monday he was taking over the task force. Country Crossing quickly made plans to reopen its electronic bingo casino and other attractions on Wednesday. But then the governor announced Tuesday that he will fight the attorney general's plans in court.
Country Crossing spokesman Jay Walker says the reopening is being delayed temporarily. Country Crossing closed in late January to prevent a raid by the governor's task force.
