Look in the logs for errors or warnings. Also let us know what version you are using.
Am guessing that node 2 still thought that node 1 was in the cluster when you did the move. Which should(?) have errored.

two node cluster

node2 has token 85070591730234615865843651857942052864
node1 goes down perminently.
do a nodetool move 0 on node2.
monitor with ring... is in Moving state forever it seems.

If the node with token 0 dies and we just want it gone from the cluster we would do a nodetool move 0. Then we monitor using nodetool ring it seems to be stuck on Moving forever.
