MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The deadline for suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore to vacate his office was Wednesday, and Moore says he's not removing anything.

Acting Chief Justice Lyn Stuart ordered Moore to clear out his personal items from his office at the courthouse.

Moore released this statement Tuesday:

"I have no intention of vacating the office of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama. Justice Stuart's action has superseded the decision of the court of the judiciary, which was one of suspension not removal. Her actions show why she should be recused of taking any further action in this case."

The Alabama Court of the Judiciary suspended Moore for the remainder of his term after finding him guilty of violating judicial ethics when he sent an order to probate judges urging them to defy the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling legalizing same sex marriage.

Moore is appealing.
