Panel to Hear Moore's Bid

Thursday, October 27, 2016

The Alabama Supreme Court says that a panel of retired judges will hear suspended Chief Justice Roy Moore’s bid to return to the bench. The justices issued a 5-3 decision saying that they will recuse themselves from hearing Moore’s appeal and described how replacement judges will be picked. Moore’s attorney objected to Acting Chief Justice Lyn Stuart’s involvement in the selection of replacement judges. The first 7 qualified and willing will serve as the special Supreme Court.
