A formal complaint was filed on Friday against Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore by an Alabama judicial oversight body claiming that he "flagrantly disregarded and abused his authority" in ordering the state's probate judges to refuse applications for marriage licenses by same-sex couples.
The New York Times reports:
As a result of the charges, Chief Justice Moore, 69, has been immediately suspended from the bench and is facing a potential hearing before the state's Court of the Judiciary, a panel of judges, lawyers and other appointees. Among possible outcomes at such a hearing would be his removal from office.
