Judge taken off VictoryLand case

SHORTER, AL (WTVM) - The Alabama Supreme Court has ruled that Circuit Judge Tom Young is off the case regarding the seizure of machines and cash from VictoryLand casino back in February.

Alabama's Attorney General filed a motion to get a new judge, saying Judge Young was prejudiced.

Attorneys for VictoryLand owner Milton McGregor wanted to keep Judge Young on the case.

They argued that the Attorney General was attempting to "judge shop" to get someone who would favor them in the trial.
