Alabama Chief Justic Roy Moore Suspended
September 30, 2016 – Ultra-conservative chief justice Roy Moore of Alabama was suspended without pay for the rest of his term for directing probate judges to enforce the state’s ban on same-sex marriage. The state Court of the Judiciary, in a 50-page decision, cited Moore’s “disregard for binding federal law” as a reason for the suspension. Because of his age, he will be ineligible to run for re-election. The ruling also cited Moore’s “history with this court,” saying it was the second time he had been brought before the judiciary court for “actions grossly inconsistent with his duties as Chief Justice.”
