MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The chief justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama has announced that probate judges who defied his orders not to issue same-sex “marriage” licenses in violation of the state constitution will now face charges.

“Charges will be filed against probate judges who violated the chief justice’s orders,” Roy Moore wrote on Facebook Monday night.

Moore had issued his order late Sunday night banning probate judges in the state from issuing the licenses to homosexuals.

“Effective immediately, no probate judge of the State of Alabama nor any agent or employee of any Alabama probate judge shall issue or recognize a marriage license that is inconsistent with Article 1, Section 36.03, of the Alabama Constitution or § 30-1-19, Ala. Code 1975,” he wrote.

While an exact tally is not known, at least eight probate judges had announced by early Monday that they would not issue such licenses after a federal court denied an appeal of a case declaring the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Act unconstitutional.

As previously reported, in 2013, two lesbians in the state sued Gov. Robert Bentley and Attorney General Luther Strange —among others—in an attempt to overturn the law after one of the women was denied from adopting the other woman’s child. Last month, U.S. District Judge Ginny Granade ruled in favor of the lesbians.
