dbo:abstract
  • Roy Stewart Moore (né le 11 février 1947) est un magistrat et un homme politique américain. Membre du parti républicain, il est à la tête de la Cour suprême de l'État d'Alabama entre 2001 et 2003 puis, à nouveau, à partir de 2013. Roy Moore est connu pour son opposition aux décisions de la Cour suprême des États-Unis. En 2003, il a ainsi été démis de ses fonctions pour avoir refusé d'enlever le monument religieux qu'il avait fait installer au tribunal suprême d'Alabama en dépit de l'ordre qu'il avait reçu d'un juge fédéral. Début 2015, il refuse à nouveau de se plier à une décision venue de la Cour suprême : celle d'autoriser le mariage homosexuel en Alabama. Il ordonne alors aux magistrats de l'État de refuser d'octroyer des licences de mariage aux couples de même sexe. * Portail de l’Alabama Portail de l’Alabama * Portail du droit Portail du droit (fr)
  • Roy Stewart Moore (born February 11, 1947) is an American judge and Republican politician. Moore was elected to the position of Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in 2001, but removed from his position on November 13, 2003 by the Alabama Court of the Judiciary for refusing to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments commissioned by him from the Alabama Judicial Building despite orders to do so by a federal court. Moore was again elected to be Chief Justice in 2013, but was suspended in May 2016 for directing probate judges to enforce the state's unconstitutional ban on same-sex marriage. On September 30, 2016, the Alabama Court of the Judiciary finalized its decision and suspended Moore without pay for the rest of his term running through January 2019. In the years preceding his first election to the state Supreme Court, Moore successfully resisted attempts to have a display of the Ten Commandments removed from the courtroom. The controversy around Moore generated national attention. Moore's supporters regard his stand as a defense of "judicial rights" and the Constitution of Alabama. Moore contended that federal judges who ruled against his actions consider "obedience of a court order superior to all other concerns, even the suppression of belief in the sovereignty of God." Moore sought the Republican nomination for the governorship of Alabama in 2006, but lost to incumbent Bob Riley in the June primary by a nearly 2-to-1 margin. On June 1, 2009 he announced his campaign for the 2010 election for governor. Moore placed fourth in the Republican primary held on June 1, 2010, having received only 19 percent of the vote. On April 18, 2011, Moore announced that he was forming an exploratory committee to run in the Republican presidential primaries in 2012. When that campaign failed to gain traction, he began to draw speculation in the media as being a potential Constitution Party presidential contender. In November 2011, Moore withdrew his exploratory committee and ended all speculation of a presidential candidacy when he instead announced that he would in 2012 seek his former post of Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. On November 6, 2012, Moore won election back to the office of Alabama Chief Justice, defeating replacement Democratic candidate Bob Vance. On May 6, 2016, Moore was suspended from the bench and awaited a hearing and trial by the Alabama Court of the Judiciary for multiple ethics code violations, including abuse of authority and interference with federal-level court rulings and injunctions related to same-sex marriage. Following the completion of the investigation and a unanimous vote by the Court of the Judiciary, Moore was suspended without pay for the remainder of his term on September 30, 2016. Moore was found guilty of all six charges against him of violation of the canons of judicial ethics. (en)
  • Roy Stewart Moore (Gadsden (Alabama), 11 februari 1947) is een Amerikaans jurist en politicus van de conservatieve Republikeinse Partij. Moore is de huidige Chief Justice van het Hooggerechtshof van Alabama. In 2003 weigerde Moore, op dat moment al twee jaar Chief Justice in Alabama, om een monument ter ere van de tien geboden, dat hij in het gerechtshof had laten plaatsen, weg te halen. Hij had daartoe nochtans de opdracht van een federale rechter. Volgens verschillende partijen ging het beeldhouwwerk met de christelijke boodschap in tegen de scheiding van kerk en staat. Op 13 november 2003 werd Moore daarom uit zijn positie ontslagen. In 2004 werd het monument uit het gerechtshof verwijderd. In 2006 probeerde Roy Moore zich tevergeefs in de Republikeinse voorverkiezing te plaatsen voor het gouverneurschap van Alabama. Ook in 2010 was hij kandidaat voor die functie. In 2011 kondigde hij aan dat hij een verkennend comité aan het vormen was om een eventuele deelname aan de presidentsverkiezingen van 2012 te bestuderen. In november van datzelfde jaar gooide hij zijn slabakkende campagne om en kondigde hij aan zich opnieuw kandidaat te willen stellen om rechter te worden in het Hooggerechtshof van Alabama. Moore versloeg nipt zijn Democratische tegenstrever, Bob Vance. In januari 2013 werd hij opnieuw ingezworen. (nl)
