TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed lawsuits filed by a convicted former Arkansas mayor against various state and federal officials and members of the media.

Former Garland City Mayor Yvonne Dockery had sued law officers, state and federal prosecutors, the FBI, state and federal judges and members of the media for alleged conspiracy against her.

The Texarkana Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/tpiH27 ) that U.S. District Judge Paul Holmes found Dockery's allegations baseless and said that they have already been addressed.

Dockery is currently serving a federal prison sentence for mail fraud connected to missing money from Garland City's volunteer fire department funds and illegal contracts for police cruisers and a fire truck.

She is appealing those convictions.
