Friday, October 21, 2016 the Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC) dismissed the complaint filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) against Alabama Supreme Court Justice Tom Parker (R).

Parker is being represented by Liberty Counsel.

Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “We are pleased that the complaint against Justice Tom Parker has been dismissed. The speech restrictive Judicial Canon clearly violates the First Amendment. The Canon is so broad that it prevents judges from commenting on any case pending anywhere in the county, even if they are teaching students in law school. Shame on the SPLC for filing this politically-motivated complaint against Justice Parker. I call upon the Alabama Supreme Court and the legislature to change this unconstitutional speech restriction and the automatic removal provision.”
