BREAKING: Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore Suspended For Remainder Of His Term

AL.com has the big news:

Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore has been suspended from the bench for telling probate judges to defy federal orders regarding gay marriage. The Alabama Court of the Judiciary (COJ) issued the order Friday suspending Moore from the bench for the remainder of his term.

“For these violations, Chief Justice Moore is hereby suspended from office without pay for the remainder of his term. This suspension is effective immediately,” the order stated. The court found him guilty of all six charges of violation of canon of judicial ethics. Moore was tried Wednesday before the COJ on the six charges that claimed he violated canons of judicial ethics regarding that Jan. 6 administrative order to the state’s 68 probate judges.

Prosecutors said Moore’s order sought to have probate judges defy the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that declared gay marriage legal nationwide and halt the issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Moore and one of his attorneys said at the trial that the order was just a status report on the state of a petition that had been pending before the Alabama Supreme Court and did not tell the probate judges to defy federal orders.

The nine-member Court of the Judiciary thought otherwise and issued the sanction. The nine member court had several options – acquit Moore, remove him from the bench, suspend him without pay, or issue a statement of censure expressing disapproval. Removal from the bench required a unanimous decision and any of the other sanctions require a minimum 6-3 vote. Moore can appeal the ruling to the Alabama Supreme Court.

Stand by for an avalanche of sadz!

    • Reality.Bites

      He can’t run for another term on the bench due to age restrictions so he’s effectively off the bench forever

      • Pollos Hermanos

        Without pay!

        • Bruno

          If he’s allowed to (or maybe even if he’s not), he’ll probably do a teabangelical speeches tour and get paid for those.

          • Chucktech

            “Let us now pass the collection plate so we can pay brother Moore for his speech.”

            Sounds lucrative…

      • bkmn

        And there are plenty of stupid people in Alabama that will support him in his run to be governor.

        • Paula

          George Wallace’s legacy lives on.

        • Larry Gist

          I am hoping he will be dead by then, or drop dead before he can take the oath of office.

      • jimbo65

        Well that’s a relief. At first I thought why didn’t they go ahead and remove him like last time? Knowing he can’t serve ever again puts my mind at ease.

      • Christian1234567
      • Uncle Mark

        Don’t worry, Mr Moore; soon there will be sunshine and rainbows to cheer you up again. Oh, that’s right…you hate rainbows. Well fuck you, you angry hate-monger.

    • Dramphooey

      It’s Alabama; if Moore is now less I’ll take it.

    • Nausea

      Moore is suspended. In a sling??

    • The_Wretched

      His lack of technique is distressing.

  • Ben in Oakland

    Why, is that Loser Matt presiding over yet another victory dance?

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Jesus just doesn’t like you, Roy. Neither do I.

  • Stev84

    >”Moore can appeal the ruling to the Alabama Supreme Court.”

    What? Where all his friends sit. How does that make sense

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Not sure they really like him much.

    • Dramphooey

      Coworkers are not necessarily one’s friends when one is an asshole constantly yelling “look at me! Look at me!”

    • lymis

      Can’t speak to the current crop, but in the past, his fellow justices rarely had anything good to say about him.

  • Do Something Nice

    A Blasphemy Day present!

      Well, goddamn!

      Or as we say with our most gentile southern drawl, jesus fucking christ!

      • Do Something Nice

        Good morning to you GayOldLady!

        • GayOldLady

          Good morning to you Mr. D.S. Nice! How are you this fine day?

          • Do Something Nice

            Good. It’s a beautiful day, Friday and the forecast is fun this weekend!

          • GayOldLady

            That sounds like the perfect forecast to me. You go out there and enjoy every single minute of it. Cheers!

      • B&E

        Well bless his heart

            I believe it’s pronounced “Ho-wert.”

          • ericpayne

            You’re close. It’s more like: “Way-el, blessz hissz hay-art!”

      • greenmanTN

        Is it just me, or is being blasphemous just more fun in the South? I mean you can make people get all bug-eyed and twitch if you’re really skillful about it!

        • GayOldLady

          It’s more fun in the South. Jeeeezuzzz fuuckiiiiin chrisssssst! Then sit back and watch the Southern Baptists melt into a pool of fury.

          • greenmanTN

            LOL! One of my Sunday School teachers was the high school football coach. He hit all of my buttons and I hit all of his. We were like a cobra and a mongoose, though I couldn’t tell you which one was which. I think we took turns. He often made analogies between football plays and religion, and though I never said it outright, I was like “You realize that doesn’t make a bit of fucking sense, right?”

          • GayOldLady

            Oh……I know what you mean. All of that praying before games asking Jesus to help you go knock the shit out of somebody. It simply doesn’t compute. Making the sign-of-the-cross before the kickoff. Taking a knee in the end zone after a touchdown. Pointing to the sky and pounding the chest over the heart. Craziness. I don’t think Jesus ever existed, but even if he had “football” wouldn’t have been his thing, if the bible is any indication. But in the South, they have to put jesus in the middle of everything cause that’s what they do.

          • greenmanTN

            Seriously! That is one of my pet peeves, some football (or basketball, baseball, ping-pong, etc) player thanking Jesus for the win. Yeah, it’s great that Jesus was watching over and directing your game, though it kind of sucks he was distracted from the children starving to death in other places, you arrogant fuck! But enjoy your Christ-enabled win, you smug asshole!

          • Uncle Mark

            It reminds me of an old South Park episode, where one of the fans in the stands with a large bet on the game is praying to Jesus. Jesus is sitting a couple rows back, and disgustingly tells the guy to ‘leave him alone.’

        • Sweet baby Jesus in the manger sucking on Mary’s titties!

          Mayhap it is.

        • Mens Sana

          All things considered, about as much fun in the South as in Mecca.

          • greenmanTN

            In Mecca you might get beheaded. In the South you just get snubbed at the grocery store and they start rumors about you,which are far more entertaining than your actual life.

        • perversatile

          I don’t know if this is blasphemous or just a typical Sunday dinner at my Granny’s house, all the ladies are in the kitchen, I’m there too, under foot, in the way.
          ”Little pitcher’s have big ears” whatever in the Hell that means.

          Aunt Zola-. Jesus Mary and Sam! I don’t know how two good lookin’ people could have such an ugly baby. You know down at the store, how they got those real big jars of pickled hog’s feet…
          Granny- Now that’s enough of that.
          Cousin Kim- Ya’ll talking about Lesie’s new baby? Mama said William ain’t even picked the baby up once.
          Granny- First time daddies can be like that
          Aunt Louise- Hell I don’t blame him, that is one strange lookin’ baby.
          Aunt Ruth- All babies are a blessing. A gift from the Lord.
          Zola- Put a cork in it Ruth, you ain’t even seen it yet.
          Granny- Don’t call the baby it Zola, besides you are hardly one to talk, you were none to cute yourself-
          Louise- That’s right- first time daddy saw you, he said ya’ll had the wrong end diapered.
          Zola- Be that as it may, at least I didn’t have a full set of teeth and 3 hairs with a bow sticky taped to my head.
          Aunt Annie- She had a bow taped to the baby’s head? Why would she do that?
          Zola- So everyone would know, SHE was a little girl.
          Annie- That is the most pitiful thing I’ve ever heard. She’s not deformed, is she?
          Granny- No, just a tad homely
          Kim- Ugly as homemade soap
          Ruth- The Lord tests us, to make our faith strong
          Zola- Well that is one Shitty Cracker Jack prize right there
          Granny- Zola watch your mouth!
          Ruth- We all have our own personal cross to bear
          Zola- Girlie I’m about to nail a roller skate to yours. Wait a minute~ you ain’t over there shellin peas after handlin’ snakes all morning!? Are ya?
          Granny- Leave her be Zola. You did wash your hands real good. didn’t you Ruthie?
          Zola- Yeah Ruthie-what you gotta go and get washed in the blood of the lamb with all that Pentecostal hillbilly trash?

          After hearing the door slam, Grandaddy hollers from the den ”Is she gone?”
          Granny- Yep. In a right proper huff too.
          Which is my cue to go get a 6-pack out of the refrigerator on the back porch, take it to the ‘men folk’ watching the ball game, and stay there until dinner is on the table. Because a little boy hanging out with a bunch of women might turn sissy and the surest counter measure is the company of drunk, testosterone soaked, rowdy, sports crazed, gun shootin,.fast driving, hard livin rednecks.

          • greenmanTN

            LOLOL!

            I had to wait until my mother fell and broke her hip and was under sedation to get all the really juicy stories.

            And there was some pretty surprising stuff in there. Like OMG kind of stuff. My grandfather (who I don’t remember) had a BOYFRIEND?! And that was barely just scraping the surface.

          • perversatile

            It is a true rite of passage, to be deemed capable/grown up enough to handle the family dirt, and yeah, it goes from milk and cookies bullshit to OM-Fuckin-G

    Good. Another reason to celebrate Blasphemy Day.

  • MikeBx2

    No doubt he will capitalize on the martyrdom. Even so, this should squash any larger aspiration he may have had.

    • Bruno

      Why? The martyrdom will play very well in a state like Alabama if he decides to run for guvna.

      • MikeBx2

        True. Unfortunate, but true.

  • bkmn

    Well deserved. Maybe now he can spend some time trying to help his drug addict son.

    • Gustav2

      We’ve had a bad batch of heroin in Columbus with 47 overdoses in 2 days…argh.

      • bkmn

        Heroin may be the issue that gets marijuana reclassified since studies have shown that states with medical MJ have fewer deaths from opiate overdoses.

      • ColdCountry

        I saw that in the paper yesterday: 26 overdoses in 24 hours. It’s still going on? Jesus, I just can’t imagine it. But I can’t imagine why people take crazy drugs to begin with.

    • Chucktech

      Yeah, help his son…

    • crewman

      This sounds like the best outcome. Saying you were suspended does not have the same martyr cachet that being fired does. Still, I am disappointed that “catapulted to sea” was not part of the decision somehow.

      • IcyFaye

        What do you have against ocean life?

    • Todd20036

      Is it though? He’ll just use this to martyr himself in his run for governor

      Or maybe in being overly pessimistic

  • ben-andy

    Hoping for a denial of appeal by the AL Supremes. W/o his own vote, he’ll need 5 of 8 on his side. Equally hoping he’s less popular than he thinks.

    • Balderdashing

      But most of the AL Supremes hate gay people more. If he appeals, he’ll be acquitted.

    Great way to start off the weekend! So glad that asshat is gone.

    Matt Staver represented him? No wonder he lost! This is the first time I’ve heard him argue. This man is an idiot. How did he even pass the BAR?

      Nah, he’s being persecuted for Jeebus. 😉

      • Porkie

        Of course how silly of me….

      • IamM

        Only by himself.

    • Should but the anti-gay activists are highly lacking in any self reflection or evaluation and so he will avoid the critical thinking that he needs to do.

  • Dramphooey

    I just noticed the look on Staver’s face. You could caption that picture, “I wish I remember what jerk recommended I hire this asshole to my right.”

  • Jay George
    • Bruno

      Now just to get him not to run for governor. Time to figure out who he cheated on his wife with.

      • Jay George

        I kinda have him figured for a child molester type. :p

    • EweTaw

      It would be great if this foretold a whopping landslide. But I worry that it’s just a fluke.

  • The_Wretched

    I’m confused – is the suspension a “removal” or a step less than a removal?

    And wow, Staver bad at lawyering. His summary is nothing but flat assertion.

    • Nowhereman

      They need a unanimous verdict to remove him. He is suspended until his term is up in 2018, and then he can run again and will probably win.

      • The_Wretched

        He can’t run again for Chief Justice. There’s a term limit.

        • AJayne

          Actually, in AL, an age limit. Same effect, tho…

          • The_Wretched

            Brain fart on my part, I meant to say age limit but typed the wrong thing.

          • Chucktech

            He’s suspended until he ages out. What a deliciously ignominious end to his career on the bench!

    • EweTaw

      It’s a “Move away from the bench and don’t come back to work because we’re not going to pay you” order. That’s OK by me.

  • TexasBoy

    My God, why hast thou forsaken me?!

  • Nowhereman

    This is great. However he will no doubt run for office again when his term is up in 2018 and win and go right back to bashing gays from the bench. He’s like Arpaio–whack-a-mole and they just pop up again. And again. And again.

    • Jay George

      Nope! He’s too old to run for that particular office again. 😀 It caps out at 70 I believe.

      • Nowhereman

        Really! I’m pleasantly surprised!

        • Jay George

          He’s out of public office for a couple of years. I’m sending thoughts and prayers that something keeps him away from a gubernatorial run. 🙂

  • Bill Harnsberger

    Good. Now let’s see if we can deal him another defeat when he runs for governor.

    This is a blessing in disguise. Maybe now Roy will have the time to attend to his own troubled family, like his drug addict son, instead of constantly troubling other families.

    Why wasn’t he removed from the bench entirely? Just what would it take for him to do to get a unanimous vote? Burn down the courthouse while molesting a 4-year-old?

  • Bill Post

    Shut up Roy

  • grannygood

    If he can’t follow the law then he shouldn’t be a judge who must rule by the law NOT because of religious beliefs. He wants to enforce religious beliefs I encourage him to become a preacher and work in a church. The USA has never been a theocracy and hopefully never will be. Funny how some of these so called Christians are so against Muslim theocracies (which are wrong too) but want to create a Christian theocracy in the USA.

    As I have said before, When Christians wanna lose a case, they call Alliance Defends or Liberty.

    • Mostly liberty. ADF is a little bit more picky becasue they want some wins to hang on their wall. Liberty Counsel is tasked with the doomed to fail cases and they exist to keep the excessive litigation going even when they have no case.

  • Michael Hampton

    Matt Staver must be weeping into his many bags of ill-gotten money today.

    • well its not like Matt Staver has lost anything….plus now he gets to keep representing Roy Moore as they appeal this. the truth is Matt Staver does not care about their win/loss ratio, if he did he would not take all these doomed to fail cases.

  • Jay George

    A friend just said he has to pay all legal fees incurred too. No link yet, but I bet she’s right. 😀

    • Larry Gist

      I see one of those Christian GoFundMe alternatives popping up on his page soon.

      i wonder if he’ll use his “foundation” ? You know, the one that already “owes” him over $ 300,000.

      • Jay George

        That’s why he needs to go into televangelism. He could “earn” that kind of money. It sure as hell beats the taxpayers getting stuck with his bullsh*t which is what usually happens. I hate Roy Moore so much.

    This is great news, although I don’t see how the COJ had any other option. It’s unfortunate, to say the least, that he can appeal this to the Alabama Supreme Court, and even more unfortunate that if that body does the right thing, Moore will simply claim it’s all political persecution in his quest for the Alabama governorship.

      With vibrato!

  • well he is represented by Liberty Counsel so you know an appeal is bound to happen to the fight will continue. Honestly the case is so cut and dry that there was no way around this outcome….he blatantly tried to get others to defy the law and that attempt fell flat on its face, but he did still try and he is now facing the consequences of that.

    • Ninja0980

      Let’s hope the complaint filed against fellow theocrat Tom Parker is successful as well.

  • Richard B

    With Mat Staver’s adept counsel, could any other outcome be foreseen?

  • bobbyjoe

    Quiz Question # 1 [please use a no. 2 pencil]: Now that he’s been suspended, Roy Moore will spend his time [choose one]:

    a) with his family, helping out his son, who’s been arrested multiple times and obviously needs the attention and concern of a devoted father

    b) doubling down on the homophobia and self-promotion, running around Alabama screaming that he’s a martyr in a grotesque and cynical attempt to use bigotry as a means of gaining power for himself as the state’s governor

    [Answer: you’re joking right? This is Roy Moore we’re talking about]

    • Phil

      Don’t forget c) Running for governor.

      • madknits

        Ah, but he has to resign from the judiciary to do so. He was suspended without pay, not removed from the bench. He cannot be part of both the executive and the judiciary at the same time. So if he chooses to appeal, he cannot run for governor, and if he resigns, then his case is moot. He really is between Scylla and Charybdis.

        • Circ09

          Not really. He gets more bank from resigning in disgust & talking that up rather than take a large chance on being slapped down again with an appeal. He’s not earning any pay now from the judgeship anyway. He wants to run for governor again.

  • StraightGrandmother

    #ByeFelicia

  • lymis

    Yay!

  • Natty Enquirer

    So at least one judge was against removal, which would have been the most appropriate punishment.

    • Friday

      If he’s not conveniently *removed,* he can’t run for being governor as a ‘martyr.’ He’s got to either drop his case or resign. You can’t hold judicial and executive office at the same time, you see. ‘Suspended without pay’ means he has to choose.

  • Matt

    Congrats to Mat Staver on yet another humiliating loss for the Liberty Council. Excellent work, you pathetic turd.

    • TrollopeReader

      yes, his record is something like 1 – 239,143.

    Oh Boyo !!

    Oh the sadz!

    I can hear them from here! It’s sooooooo unfair that a religious wingnut and general bigot is no longer able to inject his version of Christianity (and, let’s face it, white nationalism) into the Alabama justice system!

    SO unfair!

  • Sam_Handwich

    wow, i am pleasantly shocked

  • shrumpi

    Gotta love that Staver legal dream team!!! They are magic!

  • dcurlee

    It was a given if Staver was representing him the case was done lol

  • Friday

    Actually, Staver, it’s not the same as removing him: it’s worse for you. Now Moore has to resign in disgrace if he wants to run for governor, cause you can’t hold office in both the judicial and executive branches at the same time.

  • Jay George
  • JustSayin’

    It will be telling to see what the other elected justices on the AL scotus do when he appeals.

  • LeeCMH

    Wheeeeee.

    Roy will likely now get the redneck vote for governor. Then we’ll have another abuse of power case in a few years.

  • John Ruff

    Eh, if he appeals, let’s face it, he’s not long for this world.

    • Just Me

      I dunno, these kinds of bastards seem to live forever

  • RealityBass

    He’ll be the next governor of Alabama now that he’s renewed his martyr status.

    • Friday

      Actually, being suspended rather than actually off the bench means he *can’t* run for governor without resigning.

      • AJayne

        Really? Excellent!

        • Friday

          There’s the small snag of course that he *breaks the law all the time,* but that’s generally how this works. 🙂

      • boatboy_srq

        In its way, this was the most brilliant move: deny the old fart the ability to pass judgment on anything, while inhibiting his ability to do anything else (and of course cutting off his salary, not that he’d starve without it).

        • Friday

          I for one welcome the containment against more public damage, as long as it lasts. 🙂

  • How many minutes before Liberty Counsel kicks off it’s grifting money beg campaign to end judicial tyranny?

    That’s the ONLY win Liberty Counsel cares about.

  • Craig Howell

    For anybody who missed this heart-rendering story in yesterday’s New York Times about the plight of the nuttyfundamentalists in Iowa and elsewhere who fear they’ve lost the culture wars and the world is just passing them by; I’m sure you’ll be as moved by their pathetic plight as I was. Bet they feel even worse today.

      “Everyone they knew seemed to have a gay relative or friend.”

      Perhaps that should have told them something all by itself.

    • Good article. Pleasantly surprised that one woman in the article had enough self awareness to acknowledge that the rest of us will think she sounds crazy when she says there will be a nuclear attack on the country as an expression of gawds displeasure.

      Those poor poor persecuted evangelical Xtians. My heart bleeds for them.

  • argeejay

    Turn out the lights, Roy. On second thought…..keep ’em on…..Alabama needs light to make ALL the cockroaches scurry away.

    • Jay George

      Two down, one to go… out of the big ‘uns anyway. 🙂

  • KCMC

    Six ethics charges?
    With 6 you get suspended eggroll?

    • edrex

      “que sera sera…”

      • Paula

        That there is Mexican talk an Judge Roy don’t sabe no Mexican talk! 😀😀😀😀 /s

        • jsmukg

          Now Paula, you *know* the correct term is ‘wetback’–or if you must, ‘Messican…’ 😀

        • Just Me

          I thought que sera sera was italian……

  • CB

    Isn’t this when Joe usually adds BOOM!

  • 2amor

    “Moore can appeal the ruling to the Alabama Supreme Court.” Which he happens to be a part of… Makes no sense to me.

  • justmeeeee

    Frabjous day!

  • TheManicMechanic

    And this time make it such that the knuckle draggers can’t keep voting him back in again and again.

    • Tempus Fuggit

      Yeah, that’s the problem: he’ll likely get voted right back in. Again. Ne’er mind; when his suspension is over he’ll be ineligible because too old. Lolrofl.

  • kaydenpat

    About bloody time.

  • Tom G

    Staver says that Moore’s “order was just a status report” to the probate judges. Is this man in grade school? Congrats on a perfect record of losses Mat.

  • Guest

    I LOVE the SADZ!

      • jmax

        But quite bitter and very weak.

  • Galvestonian

    oh, now ain’t that just too bad for Justice Moore, personally I’d of took him out and tied him to a bronc and bucked the crap outta him. As far as any lawyers(?) from Liberty University, if ya wanna lose a case for sure get a Libtard Lawyer. Absolute guaranteed losers.

    • Just Me

      I think you may want to shy away from using the word “libtard” to describe lawyers from Liberty University. Conservatives use the word libtard to refer to us danged liberals, and I am pretty sure Liberty University is anything but a liberal institution.

  • Jmdintpa

    How could this travesty of justice happen with Matt Staver running the show. I tell you how… rigged by the lamestream media and sodomites thats how.

    and please before i get hateful remarks im being silly here !!!!!

  • jsmukg

    Praise the LARD!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sam

    Woohoo, and this time he can’t run for judicial office again since Alabama requires justices to retire at the age of 70. 😀

    • Circ09

      No, but I bet he is excited about people calling him Governor.

  • carrot festival

    And don’t forget to take your stupid 11 ton paperweight with you.

  • Irishsupporter

    Somebody posted this in the comments on Al.com and I think it deserves to be posted here

    “Quoth the Judicial court: Never Moore”

  • RJ Bone

    HAPPY Friday 🙂 I guess this is one way to get rid of him. Now to make sure someone as bad or worse doesn’t get in…

  • RJ Bone

    When are these people going to learn? You don’t argue when SCOTUS decides it.

    I’m getting sick and tired of this “state’s rights” bullshit. We’re one country, not 50 small ones. The inconsistencies between states lets this kind of stuff happen and it needs to stop.

  • TrollopeReader

    “Other judges in the past have been suspended by the COJ for the remainder of their terms.” [from the article] … I wonder if Mr. Chief Justice *ever* complained about those cases?

  • fuzzybits

    Matt Staver always looks like he’s passing a rock hard bowel movement.

  • James

    Should’ve been removed from the bench and disbarred.

  • Chris L Hough

    I admit I love seeing Alabama lose… no matter what the argument or game. Well done.

  • CatCope

    Is that dude in the back “crying”?

  • JellyDonut

    Can he just run again and be re-elected to the same position?

    • Baltimatt

      No. There’s an age limit.
