10 former and current justices endorse Bob Vance

— MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Four of the justices who served on the Alabama Supreme Court with former Chief Justice Roy Moore are among 10 bipartisan former and current justices who have signed a letter endorsing Moore's opponent in the Nov. 6 chief justice election.

Moore's opponent in the chief justice race, Democrat Bob Vance, held a news conference Tuesday in front of the Alabama Judicial Building to release the letter.

Four of those who signed the letter were on the court on Nov. 13, 2003 when Moore was removed as chief justice by the Alabama Court of the Judiciary for not obeying a federal judge's order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the judicial building.

The letter praises Vance as a hard working judge with great respect for the law and Alabama citizens.
