Tracey Cline is the current Durham County, North Carolina DA, elected in the wake of disbarred Duke lacrosse scandal DA Mike Nifong's epic collapse. She has gone on the warpath against one of the district Superior Court judges, vowing to get him removed from the bench "at all costs" and writing poorly-spelled specious complaints about him to the State Bar and other judicial authorities.

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?

Indirectly related to Duke LAX ping. More judicial fun here in the Bull City, featuring Mike Nifong’s successor!

I feel for the City of Durham. They will probably have to AGAIN endure the wrath and bull $hit from the likes of Je$$e Jackson, Rev Al and the New Black Panthers. Plus, this time they have Eric Holder, who will no doubt send 20 or 30 black U.S. Attorney's down there to file charges against Superior Court Judge Robert H. Hobgood.

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.

Wow, long overdue.

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.
