A former New Hampshire judge who admitted he wrote fake evaluations of himself and attempted to defraud the state retirement system has been disbarred.

The New Hampshire Supreme Court on Thursday ordered that Paul Moore no longer practice law in the state.

Moore was a Nashua district judge. Prosecutors began investigating him after he was accused of submitting false performance evaluations. Moore didn't dispute that and resigned in April.

Prosecutors later accused Moore of making false statements in an attempt to defraud the retirement plan. Moore pleaded guilty in May and was suspended from practicing law on an interim basis.

Moore didn't contest disbarment.
