Durham's interim district attorney is now officially on the clock. A private ceremony was held Monday morning for Judge Leon Stanback.

Stanback is filling in as the D.A. during Tracey Cline's suspension.

Cline was suspended following a formal complaint alleging her ongoing feud with Durham's top judge has reflected poorly on the D.A.'s office.

Next Monday, another judge will determine whether Cline can keep her job.

Stanback is classified as a temporary employee and will receive nearly $5,500 in compensation every two weeks.
