Alabama's ousted chief justice is asking the state Supreme Court to put him back in office.
Chief Justice Roy Moore says his expulsion sets a 'dangerous precedent’ by forcing judges to deny their faith and their oath of office.
Moore was removed from office on November 13th after refusing to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the Alabama Judicial Building in Montgomery.
Moore says that was a religious test that forced him to choose between his job and his faith in god.
Seven retired judges will hear his appeal and will form a "stand-in" Supreme Court as the elected judges all disqualified themselves from hearing the case.
State Attorney General Bill Pryor has 20-days to file a response to Moore’s brief.
