Lawsuit seeks to collect from Tony Alamo loyalist

A civil lawsuit filed in Miller County Circuit Court seeks to invalidate deeds on Tony Alamo Christian Ministries properties in an effort to collect a $3 million judgment against ministries member John Kolbek.

The Texarkana Gazette reports the lawsuit filed Monday by former members Seth Calagna and Spencer Ondrisek claims Kolbek transferred the properties – including the ministry compound in Fouke – out of his name in an “apparent attempt” to avoid paying the judgment.

Kolbek is a fugitive wanted for beating Calagna in Fort Smith.

Calagna and Ondrisek were each awarded $1.5 million from Kolbek after he failed to respond to their lawsuit that accused him of beating them on Alamo’s orders.

Alamo is serving a 175 year prison term after being convicted of taking young girls across state lines for sex.
