Retired Judge Rusty Johnson of Mobile, AL; suckup for Chief Justice Roy Moore

 

The state of Alabama presented with a law license in 1984 after he graduated from the University of Alabama Law School.

 

After former Chief Justice Ray Moore was removed from office for instructing Alabama judges to ignore a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on same sex marriage, Rusty decided to don a pair of Industrial Strength Knee Pads for the purpose of genuflecting in Ray Moore’s honor while decrying his removal from office.

 

Rusty signed onto a brief in support of Roy Moore that was filed with a special Alabama Supreme Court that will hear Moore’s specious appeal.

 

Rusty contends that the Alabama Court of the Judiciary circumvented a rule that required a unanimous vote to remove a judge from office and instead suspended Roy Moore for the balance of his term.

 

In his laughable brief, Rusty said in part:

  • “The punishment is tantamount to the removal from office requiring the concurrence of all members of the Court of the Judiciary.”
  • “The severity of the punishment for the Chief Justice's administrative speech in this particular case calls for modification by this appellate court lest judges misperceive that their judgment and the expression of that legal judgment must comport with a particular political and religious viewpoint, even when they state a valid, though arguable, point of law.”

So here we have a Moore apologist claiming the removal of Moore was due to his religious viewpoint and basically a violation of the law.

 

However, Rusty apparently has no problem with Moore thumbing his nose at a Federal judges’ order that he remove a Ten Commandments monument from the courthouse. The same is true of Moore’s thumbing of his nose at the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling regarding same sex marriage.

 

Hopefully, Roy Moore reimbursed Rusty for the costs he incurred in purchasing a pair of Industrial Strength Knee Pads to pay homage to the Right Reverend Roy Moore.

 

As we speak (ca. December 2016), Rusty practices law in Mobile, Alabama.
