COCKE COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) - An East Tennessee magistrate who ordered a baby's name be changed from Messiah to Martin is no longer on the bench.
Lou Ann Ballew is no longer listed as a child support magistrate.
Ballew told the mother that Messiah is a title only reserved for Jesus Christ.
A complaint led to formal charges by the board of conduct earlier this month.
A hearing has been set for March 3.
