Target: Ashley Rich, Mobile County District Attorney
Goal: Ensure Alabama follows U.S. same-sex marriage laws by firing judge in violation of this U.S. Supreme Court ruling.
A judge is violating federal law by trying to prevent marriage licences for same-sex couples from being issued. For gay couples across America, the right to legally marry was a hard fought battle, which they finally won when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in their favor. Now, Roy S. Moore, Alabama State Supreme Court Chief Justice is disobeying this new law of the land by ordering his probate judges to withhold marriage licenses for same-sex couples.
Not only is this a clear violation of U.S. law, it is also discrimination based on personal beliefs. Judges have a responsibility to be impartial and leave their own morals out of their decisions. They must base their actions solely on enforcing existing laws. Judge Moore has failed to do this and must be removed from his position.
Sign this petition to demand he is fired from his role as Chief Justice and barred from practicing law.
Dear Ms. Rich,
A horrible miscarriage of justice is occurring in Alabama as a result of Chief Justice Roy Moore’s actions. By issuing orders to his probate judges to deny same-sex couples marriage licenses, he’s failing to uphold the law of the land and issuing orders based on his own personal bias. Such actions are unacceptable for a person in his position.
We demand Judge Moore be removed from his position and formally disbarred.
