Alabama judges defying Roy Moore defying federal courts

AP: Jefferson County probate judge Alan King issued a license to two women shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court denied the Alabama attorney general's request to extend a hold on a federal judge's ruling overturning the state's ban on gay marriage.

And King issued the license despite Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore's 11th-hour attempt to keep the weddings on hold, with an order sent to all probate judges Sunday night directing them to refuse to issue the licenses.

King says he was abiding by the federal court order from January …

Perhaps this time the bar association will revoke Moore's ticket and put an end to his Christianist sideshow once and for all.
