Kaitlin Noethen started this petition to Hillsborough County Judicial System

On Monday September 9, 2019 Judge Palermo ruled that Noah McAdams remain out of his residential home and out of the custody of his very capable and loving parents. By signing this petition you are affirming that this judge did not act in the best interest of the child. 

Noah McAdams has been out of his parents custody for 132 days after they sought a second opinion in early April. Three-year-old Noah McAdams was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital (“JHACH”).  Noah’s parents, Taylor and Josh, reluctantly agreed to two rounds of chemotherapy, after being made aware the courts could and would force them to comply.  They also implemented additional supportive therapies proven to treat cancer. After the second round of chemo concluded, Noah and his parents celebrated that there was no longer any detectable cancer cells in his blood.  However, due to the laws in Florida, children under 18 are required to undergo the full recommended treatment plan of the pediatric oncologist, which is typically 2-4 years, regardless of the progress or desire for alternative opinions or treatments. Yes, children are being forced to continue undergoing toxic treatments even when their bodies are free of any cancer. 

Once this petition reaches 100,000 signatures we will present this to the Florida House of Representatives with the hope they will act pn behalf of all children that could be the subject of action of Judge Palermo and be spared similar consequences. 

Florida judges may be removed in one of two ways: On the recommendation of the judicial qualifications commission, the supreme court may discipline, retire, or remove a judge.


Judges may be impeached by a two-thirds vote of the house of representatives and convicted by a two-thirds vote of the senate.
