Durham DA, Tracey Cline, removed from office
Today, Judge Hobgood removed Tracey Cline as the DA for Durham County.
A good analysis of the decision is here. Full text of Hobgood's decision is here.
One interesting sidenote here is that Cline's chief assistant, Jim Dornfried (in the back of the group in this picture) filed to challenge Orlando Hudson for his seat as Superior Court Judge this fall. His campaign will likely be a referendum on Judge Hudson's decisions and keep this controversy alive in the weeks to come.
