^ 139La nuclear magnetic resonance studies reveal markedly different magnetic properties of the two sites created by the charged domain wall formation in La_(5/3)Sr_(1/3)NiO_4. NMR is slow compared to neutron scattering; we observe a 30 K suppression in magnetic ordering temperature indicating glassy behavior. Applied magnetic field reorients the in-plane ordered moments with respect to the lattice, but the relative orientation of the spins amongst themselves is stiff and broadly distributed.
