Roy Moore Just Won’t Go Away (Literally)

Suspended former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who was removed from the bench by a judicial ethics panel after he attempted to undermine federal constitutional law on same-sex marriage (see earlier posts), literally won’t go away. The Acting Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Lyn Stuart, sent a letter to Moore last week asking him to vacate his office since he has been removed from the bench. Moore  has refused to go. Justice Stuart has already shown great patience since she could have ordered Moore be removed for failing to vacate the premised.

In the meantime Moore has appealed the Judicial Ethics Court’s decision to the Supreme Court, and has made a request for recusal that would effectively prevent any justices who may vote against him from hearing the appeal. he has almost no chance of prevailing on appeal. At some point Justice Stuart will likely order that Moore be removed if he refuses to vacate the courthouse. The saga continues. . .
