MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A judge in Montgomery is delaying a decision on whether to return more than 1,600 gambling machines seized in a raid at the VictoryLand casino in 2013.

Circuit Judge William Shashy told lawyers during a hearing Tuesday he wants to see what happens in other cases and the Legislature before deciding the request by VictoryLand owner Milton McGregor.

Al.com (https://bit.ly/1DrF8Zb ) reports that McGregor hopes to reopen his Macon County operation soon if he can find a vendor for electronic bingo machines.

Shashy ruled in June that the state wrongly seized gambling machines and more than $260,000 in cash from VictoryLand during the raid. McGregor is in in court trying to get everything returned.

The state attorney general’s office is trying to block the release of the machines and cash.
