Ouachita Judges Say They’re Above the Law

Judges claim immunity to lawsuits for acts of corruption

By Zach Parker zach@ouachitacitizen.com

Some Fourth Judicial District Court judges, who face claims for damages in a lawsuit filed in federal court by their peer Judge Sharon Marchman, filed pleadings Monday arguing they cannot be sued for acts of corruption or malice.

The four defendant judges making that argument are judges Fred Amman, Wilson Rambo and Carl Sharp as well as retired Judge Ben Jones, who now serves as court administrator, at Fourth Judicial District Court for Ouachita and Morehouse parishes. They are represented by special assistant attorney general Brian D. Landry, of Shreveport.

Those four judges are just a few of a handful of defendants who Marchman claimed violated her constitutional rights when she tried to expose the defendants’ concerted efforts to cover up law clerk Allyson Campbell’s alleged payroll fraud and document destruction.

    These judges need to be dealt with severely and quick. These people are crooks for want of a better word. We can do better than this,no wonder our country is in such a bad shape.

  2. Ben Johns Says:

    I second that. When the judiciary does not work in a community nothing works right. Corruption supports corruption. This is a sad day and we should all hang our heads low. The system is broke and the only way to fix it is to clean house, the whole house.

    I wonder if the defendants could ever be considered not guilty?
