What others have said about Hon. Paul Goetz



Comment #: NY5565
Stonewall is associated with a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay community.(NOT CIVIL DEMONSTRATIONS)
Paul Geotz is a member of Stonewall Democratic Club. We find it terribly ironic and absurd that a NY Judge would associate with a group with a past link to violence. It is unfortunate that we believe he treats people in court with verbal aggression. More important is his dissociation with members in/during trial. We believe his overall performance is unacceptable to families that have reared children.


Comment #: NY5564
Over all, my opinion is that Paul Goetz is
arrogant. His word and his action terribly contradict each other. He orders actions during trial yet the description and reason based for his decision contradicts his behavior/action during trial.His actions and demeanor appears to be an angry person with a superior elite complex. Ultimately it is my opinion that he may have a mental health issue.


Comment #: NY5013
This is a horrible judge. He is very pro-father, despite any and all proof against the father. He has no regard for any child safety concerns, and will not agree to anything on the mother's part, or acknowledge her concerns.
