Liquor license hearing for Victoryland moved back | News
SHORTER, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's liquor control agency has moved back a hearing to determine if the newly reopened VictoryLand casino in Shorter will get a license to serve liquor.
The Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board initially set the hearing for Jan. 23 and then moved it up to Jan. 10 because VictoryLand requested an earlier date. ABC attorney Bob Hill said Friday the hearing has now been moved back to Jan. 23 because all the participants couldn't make the earlier date.
VictoryLand's casino reopened Dec. 18 after being closed two years because of the state's crackdown on gambling machines. State Attorney General Luther Strange is opposing a license because he contends VictoryLand is operating illegal machines. VictoryLand attorney Joe Espy says they are legal electronic bingo.
