|Chief Justice Roy S. Moore|
The Court of the Judiciary complaint relates to a January 6, 2016 Administrative Order by Moore which - after Obergefell v. Hodges - declared "Alabama probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary to the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment or the Alabama Marriage Protection Act [which]remain[s] in force and effect."
The Court asserts six counts of violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct, including Canon 2A for failure to respect and comply with the law".
Moore's Liberty Counsel defenders filed a federal action to enjoin the suspension. See complaint.
