A local lawyer filed a complaint against her; it was referred to an out-of-county judge not involved in the fracas, and he ruled yesterday that she be suspended pending the outcome of a hearing where he decides whether or not she gets removed.
Interesting (and rarely here in Zimbabwe With a Ballpark), the race card can't be played in this discussion. Both Cline and Orlando Hudson, the judge, are black. I think she's playing the sex card instead, as she is female and Hudson is male.
Just another day in Durham. Maybe The Fong can get his law license back and run again! He'd get at least 30% of the vote, and the only reason he'd lose is not the miscarriage of justice he committed, but that he didn't make the indictments against the lacrosse players stick.
Wow. That’s a real upstanding series of D.A.s that Durham has had recently. (rme)
So if she is removed from office, will that also disbar her?
I would love to see her out on her ear.
Indirectly related to Duke LAX ping. More judicial fun here in the Bull City, featuring Mike Nifong’s successor!
You sure live in a weird place.
The Current FReepathon Pays For The Current Quarters Expenses?
On a similar note....I wonder if Je$$e ever actually sprung for the promised free 4 year education for the hooker who filed rape charges against the LaCross players? Guess not, since she is in prison and would have trouble making it to her daily classes at Duke.

Every once in a while I go back to read the blog at http://durhamwonderland.blogspot.com/ to follow up on the reverberations from the Duke lacrosse fiasco, and continue to be gobsmacked by the idiocy that still runs rampant in Durham, both in the government and in the academy.
Cline will continue to receive her salary during the suspension.......
Govt work....only place you can suspended With pay....try that in private sector.
