3 of Roy Moore’s law clerks fired

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WIAT) — Three of suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore’s law clerks have been fired. Moore’s attorney, Mat Starver, says acting chief justice, Lyn Stuart, fired Moore’s head law clerk and two other clerks.

Roy Moore says he’ll continue to fight a ruling against him, saying his order to state probate judges was perfectly legal. He was suspended for the remainder of his term without pay after being accused of telling probate judges not to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, even after same-sex marriage was legalized in the country.

The State Court of the Judiciary says his actions violated a U.S. Supreme Court ruling.

Moore has been asked to vacate his office by Tuesday. His legal team says it’s too soon for that request because his appeal is still pending before the state supreme court.
