ALABAMA: Ethics Complaint Filed Against Acting Chief Justice Lyn Stuart
Sanctity of Marriage Alabama has filed a much needed ethics complaint with the Judicial Inquiry Commission against acting Chief Justice Lyn Stuart.
The complaint outlines how acting Chief Justice Lyn Stuart has repeatedly failed to avoid impropriety or the appearance of impropriety, failed to perform the duties of her office impartially, failed to avoid conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice that brings the judicial office into disrepute, and failed to conduct herself at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.
Justice Stuart played a part in a sealed case regarding Chief Justice Moore, has repeatedly, prematurely, and boldly inserted her judgment for that of courts over which she should have no sway, and even now, refuses to disqualify herself from the process of Chief Justice Moore’s appeal. The sealed case was Moore v. Judicial Inquiry Commission, which means that the JIC is already aware of the ethical violations of Justice Lyn Stuart. The hope is that they have not become so politically motivated as to cover such flagrant violations of the Canons that they are supposed to uphold.
