‘Ten Commandments Judge’ Seeks Top Ala. Post Again

Former Senior Director

Former chief justice Roy Moore, known to many as the “Ten Commandments judge,” announced plans to run for chief justice in 2012. Moore was removed from the court in 2003 for defying a federal judge’s order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state judicial building. Two other candidates have declared their intent to run in the Republican primary in March 2012.
