Roy Moore takes oath as Alabama chief justice
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Roy Moore promised continued loyalty to God first as he took the oath of office to become Alabama's Supreme Court chief justice.
The ceremony Friday came almost 10 years after Moore was removed from the same position for refusing to obey a federal judge's order to move a Ten Commandments monument from the Alabama Judicial Building. He was re-elected to the position in November.
Moore earlier was known as the Ten Commandments judge as a circuit court judge in Etowah County for keeping a copy of the commandments on his courtroom wall.
His supporters filled the Supreme Court chambers and cheered as Moore once again took the oath of office.
He promised to remember that most of what judges do in court comes from the Bible.
