BENTLEY APPOINTS JUDGES FOR ROY MOORE’S APPEAL
By WVUA 23 Web Writer Audrey Watford
Gov. Robert Bentley appointed seven retired judges on Oct. 31 to hear the appeal of suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore.
The special Supreme Court includes: H. Edward McFerrin, who presided in Butler, Crenshaw and Lowndes counties; Robert G. Cahill of Jefferson County; William R. King of Crenshaw County; James H. Reid Jr. of Baldwin County; Lynn Clardy Bright of Montgomery; Ralph A. Ferguson Jr. of Jefferson County; and John D. Coggin of Cherokee County.
Those seven judges were chosen at random, and all agreed to serve on the court.
They will convene to consider whether the court of the judiciary handled Moore’s case properly.
