Durham DA may lose job over feud with judge

Monday, February 13th, 2012

DURHAM, NC (AP) — Durham County’s district attorney is in a fight for her job at a hearing deciding whether she should be removed from office after accusing a senior judge of corruption.

A hearing set for Monday is to decide whether Durham District Attorney Tracey Cline wrongly damaged the court system’s reputation for equal justice.

Cline has raised serious misconduct claims against Superior Court Judge Orlando Hudson over the past three months, saying Durham’s senior judge is biased against her and should be removed from all criminal cases.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports a hearing to remove a district attorney has happened only once before, after a white DA in New Hanover County used a racial slur in a bar against a black man nearly two decades ago.

NC Racial Justice Act hearing continues

Monday, February 13th, 2012

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) — The first evidentiary hearing involving the state’s Racial Justice Act is scheduled to continue this week in a Cumberland County courtroom, where prosecutors plan to call four more current or former judges to testify.

The Fayetteville Observer reported that the hearing resumes Monday in the case of convicted killer Marcus Robinson, who’s trying to get his death sentence changed to life in prison without parole. Robinson is a black man convicted of killing a white teenager in 1991.

Robinson is trying to prove racism was involved in the selection of his jury or in the court system statewide. His jury had nine whites, two blacks and one American Indian.

Last week, the judge who presided over Robinson’s trial testified, as did the trial prosecutor, who’s now a judge.
