Lawsuit against Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall dismissed

MONTGOMERY, AL - A Montgomery Judge dismissed a lawsuit submitted by Troy King against State Attorney General Steve Marshall. 

King was looking to get a temporary restraining order to make sure Marshall didn't use any campaign funds received by the Republican Attorney General Association. 

King argued that the contributions violate the state's ban on Republican PAC transfers. 

However, Judge James Anderson says the Republican PAC is regulated by the federal government and questioned how state law could have jurisdiction over transfers that happened in another state. 

"It's a sad, sad day that we have decided to allow a group like the Republican Attorneys General Association to attempt to buy the office of Attorney General in this state," King said.
