State Bar reinstates former Durham DA's law license
A disciplinary committee of the North Carolina State Bar ruled Monday that former Durham County District Attorney Tracey Cline can get her law license back.Posted — Updated
Cline hasn't practiced law since she was ousted from the District Attorney's Office in March 2012.
She had been accused in a series of newspaper stories of prosecutorial misconduct, and when Superior Court Judge Orlando Hudson wouldn't help her figure out why and ruled against her in several high-profile cases, she repeatedly criticized him in public, accusing him of bias and corruption.
Another judge ruled that her accusations were groundless and had harmed Durham County's justice system, and he ordered her removed from office.
