Statement of the Chief Justice after API ruling:

Statement of Chief Justice Roy Moore regarding today’s order of the Alabama Supreme Court in 1140460 Ex parte State of Alabama ex rel. Alabama Policy Institute:

“The Court dismissed in its order ‘pending motions and petitions’ in the API case today but did not dismiss “lawsuits” or dismiss the case. In fact, the Court also issued the certificate of judgment (COJ) which explicitly recognized the 3 orders issued in this case last year. As I stated in my written concurrence, the Court did not disturb the existing orders in this case or the holding in API that Alabama’s Sanctity of Marriage Amendment and the Alabama Marriage Protection Act were constitutional.”
