Suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore has been asked to remove his personal items from the state courthouse and turn in his keys to the building.

Acting Chief Justice Lyn Stuart made the request with an Oct. 18 deadline.

Last month, Moore was suspended from the bench for the remainder of his term for encouraging probate judges to defy a federal order and refuse marriage licenses to gay couples back in January.

The nine-member Alabama Court of the Judiciary (COJ) unanimously found Moore guilty on six charges relating to violations of the canon of judicial ethics, and issued his suspension from the bench.

Moore filed a notice of appeal last week.
