1974 – 2001

Moore served as a captain in the United States Army. After he left the service in 1974, he enrolled in University of Alabama School of Law. By 1977, he was awarded a Juris Doctor degree and returned to his hometown of Gadsden, Alabama, to practice law, focusing on personal injury and insurance cases. In wouldn’t be long before Moore found himself working in the district attorney’s office, as the first full-time prosecutor in Etowah County.

While working in DA’s office, he was investigated by the state bar twice, both of which were dismissed as unfounded. After the first accusation was dismissed, Moore quit his job and decided to run as a Democrat for the county’s circuit-court judge seat in 1982. He lost the election and gained a close friend in his opponent.

In 1992, Moore switched over to the Republican Party. That same year, he was appointed as the circuit-court judge after failing to be elected to that same position ten years prior. “The impossible had happened!” Moore wrote afterward. “God had given me something that I had not been able to obtain through my own efforts.”

In 1994, he ran as Republican in an election for the circuit-court seat. Moore won the election with 62% of the vote.

He was involved in a controversy when he decided to hang up a wooden Ten Commandments plaque in his courtroom. Moore also opened each court session with an early prayer, which caused the local branch of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to send out a letter on June 1993, threatening a lawsuit against Moore. That lawsuit came to fruition in March 1995 when the ACLU claimed that pre-session prayers and hanging a Ten Commandments plaque in a courtroom are deemed unconstitutional. In 1996, Circuit Judge Charles Price came to the conclusion that pre-session prayers were unconstitutional, but the Ten Commandments plaque was protected. The judge later changed his decision and demanded that Moore removed the plaque within ten days. Moore did not let up and the case was thrown out in 1998.

Roy Moore was chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court from 2001 to 2003. When he was sworn into office, he said, “I pledged to support not only the U.S. Constitution but the Alabama Constitution as well, which provided in its preamble that the state ‘established justice’ by ‘invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God.’ The connection between God and our law could not be more clear …”

Shortly after taking the role of Chief Justice, a statue of the Ten Commandments was erected outside the Alabama Supreme Court. Moore, the man who came up with the idea of the statue, faced heavy criticism and tremendous controversy from his decision. He was later removed from his position in the Alabama Supreme Court after he defied a court order to remove the statue.

Moore would not return to the bench until 2012 when he won the Republican primary for chief justice of Alabama. He sparked further controversy in 2015 when he encourage state officials to disregard the same-sex marriage ruling. Moore had issued an order, stating, “until further decision by the Alabama Supreme Court, the existing orders of the Alabama Supreme Court that Alabama probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary to the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment or the Alabama Marriage Protection Act remain in full force and effect.”

He resigned from his position in 2016 after he received six charges of ethical violations and was suspended by the Court of the Judiciary.

Moore is currently in the race for a seat in the Alabama Senate. While on the trail of the election, nine women came forward with sexual misconduct allegations, some dating back 40 years.
