Moore to run for chief justice

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Judge Roy Moore, who was removed as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in 2003, held a news conference on Tuesday morning to announce his decision to run for the post again.

Moore was elected chief justice in 2000. A trial court for judges removed him for refusing to abide by a federal judge's order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from public display in the state judicial building.

The current chief justice, Chuck Malone, and Charlie Graddick, a former attorney general who's now a circuit judge in Mobile, are already running in the Republican primary on March 13. No Democrat has announced.
