Breaking: Judicial Panel Recommends 30 Day Suspension for Judge Lisa Gorcyca

The Judicial Tenure Commission finally ruled in the Judge Lisa Gorcya Case. They recommended the judge be publicly censured (if that hasn’t already occurred) and suspended for 30 days without pay.

Editor’s Note: It sounds like that the prosecution of the highly respected Judge Lisa Grocyca was very political in her community. Let’s hope that this case is now out of the media and that the families especially the children involved in Judge Gorcyca’s cases can move forward with their lives.

    I have noticed that the multiple FB pages that were instrumental in publicizing this case has changed their names so that the family name is no longer a part. Some have attempted to define their cause more broadly. I am hoping that the sites were requested by the parents to stop using their (and the children’s) name.

    It is my understanding that Judge Gorcyca has the opportunity to appeal again when the Supreme Court considers the recommendation of the Judicial Tenure Commission–and I hope that she does. They do have a recent record of sending cases back, and I think that the actual legal grounds on which the JTC recommendation was based is very weak.

      Wow, I would like to see more cases where the children’s names are protected. Whoever is responsible for that is doing the right thing. I really never understood how in juvenile court a minor’s privacy is respected but not in family court. That does not make any sense. In Australia it is illegal for the media to put the photos of children involved in custody cases.

      I was wondering about that. The hearings seemed to be very political with an open custody case pending and then the dismissal Paul Fischer. This family including the children and the judge did not deserve this.
