Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore Suspended for Remainder of Term

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore was suspended without pay Friday morning for the remainder of his term after being found guilty of ethics violations in his defiance of a Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriages. Moore had faced ethics charges for the second time in 13 years—the first for his refusal to allow the removal of a Ten Commandments monument in the court lobby—for his January 2016 administrative order informing the state’s 68 probate judges of their “ministerial duty” to not issue same-sex marriage licenses.
