Yesterday's News

This from this yesterday's AP report regarding disbarred DA Nifong:

"Judge: Disbarred D.A. Must Leave Now"

Jun 18, 10:21 PM (ET)


"DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - A judge ordered Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong on Monday night to leave his duties immediately after he was disbarred for his misconduct in the Duke University rape case.

The veteran prosecutor had announced earlier in the day he would leave July 13. But that wasn't soon enough for Superior Court Judge Orlando Hudson, who decided to immediately suspend Nifong from office.

As part of the suspension, Hudson said he would order the sheriff to prevent Nifong from carrying out any duties of the district attorney.

"I have thought about the situation, and this is way I wish to proceed," Hudson said.""

Yah. Break some 24 rules of professional conduct trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear of a case and ya better expect the judge to wanna proceed that-a-way!

You go, Judge! You go, Judge! You go!

Today Nifong even had to turn in his badge. Awwwww....
