RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - More than three years after her ouster, a former North Carolina district attorney has been suspended from practicing law.

But area media outlets report that a State Bar panel said former Durham District Attorney Tracey Cline will be able to reapply for a license after two years.

The panel says Cline violated professional conduct rules related to statements she made against Superior Court Judge Orlando Hudson. The panel also says she violated rules in seeking prison records for two inmates.

A judge dismissed her from office in 2012.

Cline declined to discuss the rulings Friday but said she regretted some of her conduct at the core of the suspension.

Cline alleged in court filings that Hudson was biased against her. The state Judicial Standards Commission cleared Hudson of Cline’s allegations.
