Ten Commandments Controversy Update

By  | 

The Alabama Supreme Court has unanimously rejected a motion to cancel the appointment of a seven member replacement court to hear Moore's appeal for being removed from the bench.

The replacement judges at issue were randomly chosen after all eight of the state's Supreme Court justices relinquished themselves from reviewing Moore's initial appeal.

Roy Moore was removed from the bench last summer after not adhering to a federal order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the rotunda of the Alabama Judicial Building.
