Judge Reva G. Goetz Retires From Superior Court Bench
By a MetNews Staff Writer
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Reva G. Goetz retired yesterday.
A court official said Goetz, 61, had officially departed the bench after having taken leave since last month.
Goetz was appointed a judge by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in February 2010. She had been a court commissioner since 1991, first on the old Malibu Municipal Court and then on the Superior Court.
A native of Pasadena, she graduated from UCLA in 1975 and worked as an accountant until 1983, spanning the period of her law school attendance. Among her accounting positions, she served as controller and financial analyst at Citigroup’s Diners Club/Carte Blanche subsidiary.
Graduating from Whittier College School of Law in 1981 and earning admission to the State Bar the following year, she established a solo practice in Los Angeles in 1983. She joined the District Attorney’s Office in 1984 and worked there until her appointment as commissioner.
Her last judicial assignment was to Van Nuys. She had previously sat in probate court, and as a commissioner had sat in downtown family law.
