Lawyer to talk about whether raid violated rights of patrons, employees

Attorney Jock Smith, who is with the Birmingham office of The Cochran Firm, has a press conference scheduled for Tuesday morning to talk about the recent raid on the gaming center in White Hall.
Smith will be joined by his clients, patrons and employees of the gaming facility, which was raided by the Governor's Task Force on Illegal Gambling.
He will show a video of the raid and talk about "his efforts to explore whether the governor's task force violated the individual rights of employees and patrons of White Hall," according to a press release.
The task force, during the early-morning raid, confiscated more than 100 machines and more than $560,000 in cash, which a judge has since ordered returned.
