Ouachita Courthouse Machine Goes After Local Reporter

The Ouachita judicial/legal machine, under scrutiny for alleged coverup of internal malfeasance, has retaliated against a reporter for the Ouachita Citizen by trying to depose him under the guise of an interview for jury duty.

Reporter questioned about Palowsky during jury selection

By Zach Parker

A Ouachita Citizen reporter who answered a summons for jury duty was peppered with questions about his relationship with a Monroe businessman who sued Fourth Judicial District Court officials after the reporter was placed under oath in the jury box.

Staff writer Johnny Gunter appeared in Judge Wilson Rambo’s courtroom Monday morning in response to a summons for jury duty in Jeff Mercer LLC vs. State of Louisiana, DOTD and others.

Instead of conducting interviews of potential jury members in a group, attorneys questioned potential jury members individually in Rambo’s presence. At that time, Rambo allowed attorneys with the Monroe law firm Hayes, Harkey, Smith & Cascio to question Gunter about his relationship with Monroe businessman Stanley R. Palowsky III as well as Gunter’s relationship with Palowsky’s father, Stanley R. Palowsky.

Sam Hanna Jr., publisher of The Ouachita Citizen, was issued a summons to appear for jury duty on Monday, Nov. 16.

    You fools, the State has a heavy hand, that is why the Founders tried to create a Limited government but you can’t wait to throw it overboard in favor of the administrative state which Progressives have long desired.
    You have sowed the wind and now you are reaping the whirlwind.

    Shows how bad the rest of the media is here. All media should be reporting and this would not happen. Shows how sad Monroe media is.
