A federal judge has permanently blocked an attempt by the Southern Poverty Law Center to silence a conservative judge, Justice Tom Parker of the Alabama Supreme Court.
The fight erupted in 2015 when Parker appeared on a radio program discussing the U.S. Supreme Court’s creation of same-sex marriage.
The leftists at the wealthy SPLC filed what Parker’s defenders called a “politically motivated” ethics complaint against him with the state Judicial Inquiry Commission under Alabama’s outdated judicial ethics canons.
SPLC wanted to censor him and remove him from office.
But after a year-long investigation of Parker, the complaint was dropped.
