Alabama bingo losers sue to get their money back based on 158-year-old state law:
A bingo player filed suit against two Walker County bingo halls in 2007 arguing the facilities were illegal and she was due her money back. She withdrew her suit for personal reasons.
Defendants in that case filed papers in court denying the games were illegal gambling and arguing that they were not liable for patrons' losses.
Since that suit was filed, a judge has ruled the halls were illegal and ordered them shut down.
