Retired Orleans Civil District Court Judge Paul P. Garofalo

Retired Orleans Civil District Court Judge Paul P. Garofalo, 91, died Tuesday, March 6, 2007 in Sugar Land, Texas. He was originally elected to the Orleans Municipal Court bench in 1948 and served there for approximately 15 years, winning re-election twice without opposition. In 1963, he was elected to Division G of Orleans Parish Civil District Court and served there until his retirement in 1978. He received his LL.B. from Loyola University in 1938 and was in the general practice of law until joining the Coast Guard in 1942, where he saw combat duty in the Pacific during World War II. After his discharge in 1946 as Lieutenant Senior Grade, he returned to the states and served as Hearing and Examining Officer of the U.S. Coast Guard, Merchant Marine Unit, both in New York and New Orleans, later resuming his practice of law in New Orleans in 1946.
