Roy Moore is going to be mightily displeased
This all seems irrelevant. It is obvious that Moore's January, 2016 memo ordered subordinate judges not to issue marriage licenses to gay couples because they had a “ministerial duty” to obey Alabama's law banning same sex marriage. That would be one of the laws that the Supreme Court said were unconstitutional in Obergefell v. Hodges. Moore's judicial career is thankfully at an end.
