Alabama Court Order Allows Austin's Multimedia Games to Reinstall Gaming Equipment
This is apparently an ongoing back-and-forth issue with gaming in Alabama. Back in late November, the Mobile County Sheriff's Office and the Alabama Attorney general shut down two Internet Cafes where users were taking part in Internet gambling.
Now, according to The Austin Business Journal:
An Alabama court ruled that law enforcement officials must return all equipment belonging to Austin charity gaming operator Multimedia Games Inc. that was seized during a December raid.
About 300 computer servers and hundreds of sweepstakes video readers were removed from the Birmingham Race Course in Birmingham, Ala., Dec. 22 by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, which served a warrant issued by an Alabama state judge for the race course. That warrant claimed Multimedia Games' machines violated Alabama sweepstakes law.
Multimedia Games had installed about 1,300 sweepstakes video readers at the Birmingham Race Course.
