“A disciplinary court suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore for the remainder of his term Friday for violating judicial ethics in his defiance of federal court rulings on same-sex marriage.
The decision marks the second time the Court of the Judiciary, a nine-member panel made up of judges, lawyers and others, has sanctioned the chief justice, a onetime gubernatorial candidate known for his outspoken socially conservative views. In 2003, the court removed him from office for refusing to withdraw a Ten Commandments monument from a state judicial building. This time, the court didn’t formally remove him from office, but suspended him without pay for the remainder of his term, which expires in 2019. Because of his age, 69 years old, he will be barred under state law from running for chief justice again.”
