Fourth District (Ouachita) Court Coverup Update

The plaintiff in the underlying case that has resulted in an apparent coverup by the judges of the Fourth Judicial (Ouachita, Morehouse Parishes) District Court, has filed a motion asking that all eleven judges in the district be prevented from hearing the case, according to the Ouachita Citizen’s Johnny Gunter.

Wrote Gunter:

The recusal motion, filed June 12 by Joe Ward of Covington, stated “this (Palowsky) litigation is heavily associated with, if not directly connected with, litigation filed by this Court in an effort to protect the alleged privacy rights of its long-time employee, (law clerk Allyson) Campbell. Indeed, by filing suit, all judges of this Court became ‘interested’ in this case.

“Given this fact, Palowsky respectfully, submits that the judges of this Court will not be able to rule in his litigation in a fair and impartial manner…”

After Gunter investigated and wrote about the Palowski suit, a public records request was made for documents pertaining to Campbell, and the judges sued the Citizen.

A judge earlier this month ruled the records sought by Gunter are protected by the employee’s “privacy interests.”
