But Moore did not participate in the 2015 orders, which ruled that the Probate Judges must uphold the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Act, according to the statement from Liberty Counsel.The legal group representing Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore issued a statement Friday night saying called the charges leveled against Moore by the state's Judicial Inquiry Commission "outrageous."
"The Judicial Inquiry Commission has no authority over the Administrative Orders of the Chief Justice of Alabama or the legal injunction of the Alabama Supreme Court prohibiting probate judges from issuing same-sex marriage licenses. We intend to fight this agenda vigorously and expect to prevail," the statement quotes Moore as saying.
The group Liberty Counsel, which is representing Moore, stated it will "vigorously defend" Moore
against this complaint. The group describes itself as an "international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989."
