Q: I was working with Vicki Asher who is the office manager for the District Court in Hot Springs, to obtain details on a trial set for my son in District Court on 11-27-13. It's a simple traffic violation from a single car accident but we have proof from the dealer that the transmission malfunctioned. I have a conflict with Garland County Attorney Ralph Ohm who is also the part time State District Court Judge For Hot Springs, AR. I was told by Ms. Asher that I could contact her directly anytime on 10/20/13. I was told that my son's case would be heard by Judge David Switzer. I replied that I needed proof from the posecutor's office that it was okay for Judge Switzer to hear my son's case since I had worked around and have known him for many years. I specifically stated that I wanted to make sure he was comfortable with hearing the case. The response I received this morning sent yesterday afternoon by Ms. Asher was this - Judge Switzer refuses to recuse from you son's case and for my son to bring his evidence. I was dumbfounded by her response so I emailed her back to say thank you and make sure you Judge Switzer knows that I have no problem either so long as the prosecutor and the State trooper agree. My response was sent to her and Jason Lawrence who is the Court Administrator for both Judges. The email came back to me because the information technology department for the City of Hot Springs and Garland County were informed to block my email address. My email address has been blocked per the Information Technology Department by Judge Vicki S. Cook and County Judge Rick Davis. You should know that I was the Court Administrator for Circuit Division II for 18 years. I was fired after I filed for disability that may not have had to happen because I was beginning treatment at UAMS for my back disorder that had developed. I went through a grievance hearing and Judge Cook was represented by County Attorney Ralph Ohm. I couldn't understand this since they are both State Judges. I should have one in my opening statement and have ordered that transcript. I called the State Police Troop K early this week because I was in fear of my life. This information was emailed to the Captain and he never responded. I have uncovered too much and I don't know how to handle my son's little traffic violation. I'm scared for him to enter that court room. What do I do?
