RICHMOND, Va. -- A Virginia judge has issued a temporary injunction blocking the enforcement of a law that banned electronic betting machines that had proliferated in gas stations, bars and other locations around the state.

The injunction puts the so-called skill game ban on hold until a trial set for May. That's according to Bill Stanley, a GOP state senator and attorney representing former NASCAR driver Hermie Sadler.

Sadler's truck stop and gas station company brought the lawsuit. The suit was filed against Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring.

Spokeswomen for the two officials declined comment.
