A reporter for NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune was kicked out of the New Orleans criminal courthouse under threat of arrest Wednesday, halting for a time his coverage of the first day of qualifying for candidates seeking office in the Nov. 4 election.

Orleans Parish Clerk of Court Arthur Morrell ordered journalist Robert McClendon from his office as McClendon was reviewing documents filed by indicted Juvenile Court Judge Yolanda King, who is seeking re-election amid a lawsuit and criminal prosecution that put in doubt the future of her seat.
