(Harrisburg) -- A former Northumberland County Judge has been stripped of his senior status. 

The revocation comes after Judge Barry Feudale did not respond to a letter written last month by state Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Saylor.

In the letter, Saylor outlined the Court's concerns about Feudale's judicial objectivity.

Under the terms of the recovation, Feudale may not sit as a judge.

Feudale was removed as a supervisor of state grand jury investigations by state Attorney General Kathleen Kane in 2013.

The two have clashed publicly, including allegations from Feudale that Kane ordered a break-in of his office that year, in which sensitive documents were taken.
