Moore Seeks Judge's Recusal

By  | 

Attorneys for former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore have asked a federal judge to step down from hearing any future arguments related to the Ten Commandments case.

Moore says District Judge Myron Thompson should not be involved in deciding who will pay the hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees for plaintiffs' attorneys, because he can't be impartial.

In the meantime, Alabama Attorney Gen. Bill Pryor is asking a mobile federal judge to throw out a lawsuit that seeks to return Moore to office.
