While chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Moore dissented fom the majority opinion to argue that men who raped children should be allowed to introduce evidence about the sexual histories of their child victims.

This would have included evidence that a twelve-year-old girl already had an STD when she was raped and that two fifteen year old girls were bisexual and in a relationship with each other when they were molested.

Moore also argued, while chief justice, that there was no evidence a four-year-old boy had been “forcibly” raped and that a school police officer was not “technically” an employee of the school when he had sex with a student.
