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

Moore says U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson shouldn't be involved in deciding who will pay the hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees for attorneys for plaintiffs.

The former Chief Justice says Thompson can't be impartial in the matter because he spoke last month at a legal forum in Atlanta sponsored by the American Civil Liberties Union, one of the groups that sued to have Moore's monument moved.

Richard Cohen is president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which was one of the other groups that sued Moore. He says judges speak at such functions all the time and are careful to avoid impropriety.

Moore was removed from office November 13th for refusing to obey Thompson's order to move the monument.
