Tape Available of Moore's Ethics Trial
By Alabama Public Radio
Montgomery, AL – A videotape is available of the trial of former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore. The state Supreme Court law library spent three thousand dollars to videotape the trial before the Court of the Judiciary. The tapes are available to the public. The library's director, Tim Lewis, says the trial was a significant event in the state's history and needed to be recorded. Dan Black Studios taped the trial from three angles with cameras set up in the balcony of the Supreme Court Courtroom. Moore was removed from office November 13th. He was tried for refusing to obey a federal court order to remove his Ten Commandments monument from the rotunda of the state judicial building.
