Chief Justice Roy Moore’s request to cancel oral argument in order to expedite his appeal has been approved by the Special Court. Since the case is fully briefed and there is no reason to delay the final ruling, Chief Justice Moore requested that the Special Court cancel oral argument and expedite its decision.
The current rules guiding judicial behavior unconstitutionally strip all state judges of their rights. While Chief Justice Roy Moore certainly seeks justice in his personal situation, he is also focused on gaining protection for all of the judges in Alabama who could equally suffer under this unjust and illegal precedent that the COJ has attempted to create.
Chief Justice Moore did nothing wrong and should have never been charged. He deserves justice, and a favorable resolution in his case will benefit all Alabama judges.
