Roy Moore is the elected Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, and a conservative. In 2015, he stood up for sovereignty over the issue of marriage and ordered probate judges to comply with state law rather than an order by a federal district court that attempted to change state law.
In 2003, liberals removed him from office for rejecting a federal court order to remove a statue of the Ten Commandments from the supreme court building rotunda. He was subsequently reelected in a landslide as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.
He is also the founder of the Foundation for Moral Law.
