DURHAM, NC (AP) — Durham County’s embattled top prosecutor is facing critics who charge she’s not fit for the office for feuding with a judge.

Durham DA Tracey Cline is fighting to save her job as lawyers who lodged complaints against her ask her questions under oath Monday. Cline could follow disgraced Duke lacrosse prosecutor Michael Nifong as an elected Durham DA removed from the job for performance.

Attorney Stephen Lindsay asked Cline on Monday about her determination to make changes after being elected in 2008 after Nifong and a couple of interim, appointed Durham prosecutors.

Cline was suspended last month after accusing Superior Court Judge Orlando Hudson of misconduct. Other judges ruled her accusations were meritless.

Veteran Superior Court Judge Robert Hobgood will decide whether Cline should be permanently removed.
