4th JDC judges ask appeal court to stop harassment



MONROE, La. – Several Fourth Judicial District Court judges accused of concealing alleged criminal activity at the Ouachita Parish Courthouse recently asked a state appeal court to prevent a Monroe businessman from asking them certain questions under oath.

Stanley Palowsky III, of Monroe, sued several court officials in 2015, claiming a handful of judges conspired to conceal law clerk Allyson Campbell’s alleged efforts to hide or destroy documents the businessman filed with the court in a separate lawsuit. The judges named as defendants in Stanley R. Palowsky III and others v. Allyson Campbell and others included Judges Wilson Rambo and Stephens Winters as well as retired judges Fred Amman, Carl Sharp and Benjamin “Ben” Jones. In 2015, Jones served as the district court’s administrator, a position he continues to serve in.
