The Town of Jonesboro has been ordered to produce in court a slew of financial records, per an order signed by Second Judicial (Bienville, Claiborne, Jackson Parishes) District Division B Judge Jimmy Teat.
Among the records to be produced at 9:30 AM, Thursday, January 31:
1. All bank and savings statements of judgment debtor’s rendered within one year preceding service of this rule.
2. Copies of all financial statements given by judgment debtor to anyone within one year preceding service of this rule.
3. A list of everyone, including the address, telephone number and amount, who owes judgment debtor money.
4. A list of everyone, including address, telephone number and amount, to whom judgment debtor owes money.
5. The titles to all motor vehicles, including boat trailers, registered in the name of judgment debtor.

The order relates to the case of former Fire Chief David Roberts who sued the town, claiming he was never properly terminated. The judge agreed and awarded over $36 thousand in back pay to Roberts. The town has appealed to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
What remains to be seen is if this latest order will be enforced by the courts, law enforcement, and prosecutors.
Or will it be ignored – like all the other orders, injunctions, and writs that have been issued over the past two years – by the town and its controversial Mayor Leslie Thompson, with no consequence whatsoever?
