Judge Louise Goldston of Beckley, WV; dimwitted slacker


The state of West Virginia provided Louise E. Goldston with a law license in 1984 after she graduated from West Virginia University School of Law.


It should be noted that former Gov. Gaston Caperton was duped into appointing Louise to be a Family Law Master in 1994. Subsequently, former Gov. Bob Wise was duped into appointing Louise to the bench in the 13th Family Circuit Court for Raleigh and Wyoming Counties in 2000.


FYI: Louise has had her significant snout firmly implanted in the public trough for thirty-two (32) out of thirty-six (36) years since she graduated from Law School. Apparently, no self-respecting law firm in the greater Raleigh and Wyoming Counties was about to offer her a good paying job.


The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals has charged Judge Goldston with engaging in the following misconduct.

  • Failed to act with competence (imbecile)
  • Improperly visited home of litigants (Mr. Gibson) to investigate a property dispute
  • While visiting Gibson’s property, he objected telling Louise she was now a potential witness in his case
  • When Gibson denied Louise entrance to his home until a search warrant was presented, Louise threatened to put him in jail
  • Abused the prestige of her judicial office
  • Failed to act impartially and fairly
  • Failed to comply with the law (scofflaw)
  • Failed to act with due diligence (slacker)  
  • Failed to fully cooperate with ethics investigators (Screw you, said Louise!)

All that remains now is to see what if any punishment is meted out to Judge Goldston by the enablers for Judicial Misfits sitting on the Judicial Investigation Commission mete out to Louise.


As we speak (ca. December 2020), Louise continues to sit as a Family Court Judge in Beckley, West Virginia.
