Attorney General Wants Lawsuit Against Him Dropped

Attorney General Bill Pryor is asking a Mobile federal judge to throw out a lawsuit that seeks to return former Chief Justice Roy Moore to office. If the suit is not dismissed, Pryor wants it moved to Montgomery.

Mobile lawyer Jim Zeigler filed the suit on behalf of Christian talk show host Kelly McGinley of Mobile, who alleges that she has been disenfranchised as a voter by the removal of Moore. Moore was removed from office after he refused to obey a federal court order to move his Ten Commandments monument from the state Judicial Building rotunda. Zeigler said that the suit should be heard in Mobile federal court because his client is a Mobile County voter.

A hearing on Pryor's motion to dismiss the suit could be held next week. Pryor's motion to move the suit to Montgomery says all the defendants named in the suit live in the Montgomery area and Moore's trial also was held there.
