So Federal judges see where this is going. One of them should have the guts to stop it before there is wide spread defiance.
According to the court's opinion, Moore filed his own brief, in which he stated that, as Chief Justice of Alabama, he would have the final say as to whether the 11th Circuit's order was constitutional or not. Federal judges, including (especially?) conservative ones, do not take kindly to threats that their decisions will be defied, so they added some very pointed language saying that they "expect" Judge Moore to comply with their decision unless it is reversed by the Supreme Court, but that, "If necessary the court order will be enforced." That discussion is accompanied by citations to the court decisions from 1962 and 1963 which forced Governors Wallace and Barnett to obey school desegregation orders.
