Reprimand For Former Judge Who Signed But Did Not Read Orders
From the web page of the North Carolina State Bar:
Kristen H. Ruth of Raleigh, previously a district court judge, was reprimanded by the Wake County Superior Court. Ruth, who resigned amid allegations that she signed fraudulent orders submitted by James Crouch, pled guilty to one misdemeanor count of failure to discharge her duty. The court found that Ruth did not read the orders and was unaware they were fraudulent.
The page further reports that Crouch as convicted of criminal offenses and disbarred.
WRAL.com had this report. (Mike Frisch)
