Court to consider future of Alabama chief justice

Political and Legal Posted on

A court is considering whether suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore should lose his job for an order on gay marriage.

The Alabama Court of the Judiciary scheduled a hearing for Monday on judicial investigators' request to remove Moore from office.

Moore denies any wrongdoing and is asking the court to dismiss administrative charges filed earlier this year.

Moore is accused of violating court ethics with an administrative order to state probate judges saying Alabama laws against same-sex marriage remained in effect after the U.S. Supreme Court effectively legalized gay marriage.

Investigators with the Judicial Inquiry Commission are asking the court to oust Moore without a trial, but Moore opposes the request.

Both supporters and opponents of Moore are planning noontime rallies outside Alabama's main judicial building before the hearing.
