Judge Mark Kennedy Allows White Hall Entertainment Center to Re-Open for Business

On March 23rd, 2009, a business under investigation of the state has the opportunity to fill the empty spots in its gambling and get back to witness. Collins Pettaway, a lawyer representing the White Hall Entertainment Center said that they are trying to open for business on Tuesday morning if possible. The fast track of the re-opening of the Entertainment Center is part of a temporary injunction released by Judge Mark Kennedy.

The court order cited a good argument on the part of the White Hall Entertainment Center that their slot machines are legal bingo machines and not slot machines as the investigators claimed. But Governor Bob Riley disagrees with the findings of the court. A statement from the Governor's office stated the decision of the court is fundamentally flawed and will be changed on an appeal because the Supreme Court of Alabama has already decided that slot machines are not allowed in every county of the state of Alabama.

Although the judge's order could be changed, the lawyers for the White Hall Entertainment Center that they will take advantage of the decision while their case is being heard in court. Attorney Bobby Segall said that they cannot offer new games but they continue what they are doing pending the final decision of the case. It is good news for more than one hundred employees displaced by the investigation.
