A federal jury Friday awarded former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore $8.2 million dollars in a defamation lawsuit. The case involved the U.S. Senate race in 2017, when Moore faced a decades-old allegation of sexual misconduct, in which he denied any wrongdoing. A Washington D.C.-based super PAC aligned with Democrats, the Senate Majority PAC, bankrolled a television attack ad claiming Moore was banned from the Gadsden Mall for soliciting sex from young girls. Moore's attorneys said that was false, and the jury agreed. "I feel this is vindication and I give thanks to Almighty God and the jurors in this case for a great victory over our corrupt political system," Moore said following the verdict. Attorneys for the super PAC said they planned to appeal.
