Justice J. Michael Joiner and Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore


MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The chief judge of the Alabama Court of the Judiciary (COJ) who also serves as an elder as his local church has joined in an order refusing to dismiss the ethics charges against Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, resulting in a trial.

Attorneys for Moore had sought to have his charges dismissed without the matter moving to trial, while the state Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC) asked that he be immediately removed from the bench.

On Monday, Justice J. Michael Joiner, the chief judge of the COJ, joined his eight colleagues in denying both requests.
