Sharp Overturned by 2nd Circuit

Fourth Judicial (Morehouse, Ouachita Parishes) Division G Judge Carl Sharp’s ruling last August on a motion that he be recused in Palowski v Cork was not valid. Sharp had ruled that he would not recuse himself, even though all the other judges in the district had done so.

Once a motion for recusal is made, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals said, the judge that is the subject of the motion cannot rule upon himself, and that another judge must hear the motion.

See here the Zach Parker story in the 10/29/15 Ouachita Citizen.
