Northwest Florida Daily News: Three circuit judgeships on Sept. 5 ballot, 29 Aug 2006 [cached]
Ross Goodman is running against Jim Messer in the Group 24 race.
Goodman is a partner at Levin, Papantonio, Thomas, Mitchell, Echsner & Proctor and is a visiting instructor at the University of West Florida.
He said one of his earliest court cases in the 1980s inspired his career in law and decision to run for judge.His elderly client was trying to sell a four-unit condominium building her husband had left to her after he died, and she was sued because she did not know Florida law required her to offer to sell the units to the people living there before they were offered to another buyer.
Goodman said he got the case dismissed after one of the tenants purchased the unit he was staying in and the original buyer purchased the three remaining units.
"The look in her eyes is something I'll never forget - the relief, the gratitude," Goodman said.

John Shaffer introduced our program - Judge Ross Goodman speaking on behalf of Big Brothers - Big Sisters.
Ross and his wife have been involved with BB/BS of Northwest Florida (the local agency covers the panhandle from Pensacola to Panama City) for several years and Ross remains in contact with his first "little" who is now enjoying a successful career thanks to the mentoring that he obtained in his formative years. BB/BS was originally formed by a clerk working in a juvenile court in New York who sought volunteers to serve as mentors. The organization now has offices in over 1,000 US cities and many locations overseas as well. The local chapter was started by a Naval officer with a goal of reaching 100 children per year. That goal has grown to a target of 1,000 per year. Judge Goodman stated that he found a new appreciation for the services provided by BB/BS upon becoming a circuit judge in the juvenile system and encountering children from broken homes who have too much time on their hands due to lack of participation in extra-curricular activities. Judge Goodman encouraged participation that requires a small time commitment of about 1 hour per week.
