Fight To Put Former Chief Justice Roy Moore Back In Office Continues

An attorney for a Christian talk show host, suing to return former Chief Justice Roy Moore to office, filed a motion on Monday to keep the case in Mobile.

Mobile lawyer Jim Zeigler contends the suit should be heard in Mobile County because that's where talk show host Kelly McGinley voted for Moore in 2000 and because the defendants have statewide jurisdiction, including her voting district.

Attorney General Bill Pryor has sought to dismiss or move the lawsuit to Montgomery. McGinley alleges she has been "disenfranchised" as a voter by the removal of Moore.

Federal Judge William H. Steele has given attorneys until December 15th to respond to Zeigler's motion.

The Court of the Judiciary removed Moore from office last month after he refused to obey a federal court order to move his Ten Commandments monument from the Alabama Judicial Building rotunda.

Zeigler said he does not expect the case to go to trial until early 2004.
