MONTGOMERY — Suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore has asked the Special Supreme Court tasked with hearing his appeal to expedite his case and decide his appeal on previously filed briefs.
In a motion filed Wednesday, Moore’s attorneys asked the Court to waive oral arguments and consider the appeal on its merits. Oral arguments were previously set for April 26, 2017.
Moore argues that the scheduling of oral arguments in April presents a great financial hardship for him and his family.
