Trial Set For Suspended Chief Justice Roy Moore

The Court of the Judiciary set a November 12th trial date for suspended Chief Justice Roy Moore, who is charged with violating judicial ethics standards. Also Thursday, the court gave Moore four more days to respond to the charges. His answers are now due October Third.

The court never got to hear arguments on the matter at a hearing this morning. Moore's attorney, Terry Butts, instead asked the court to agree that by arguing the extension motion before the eight judges today, Moore was not waiving his right in the future to ask some of them to step down.

Several judges testily told Butts his request was inappropriate, and that he should have sought recusals before filing any other motions. Butts said he didn't want to talk about the extension given the court's position, and the judges issued their ruling based on the written motion.
