What others have said about Hon. Mary Anne Lehman



Comment #: NY4754
She's terrible, at least to defendants. Prosecutors win in her court by showing up and breathing. She's contemptuous of males especially and lots of luck if you're appearing pro se. Poor self-control and sees offense where none was intended. The law school that granted her degree should be disaccredited.


Comment #: NY4056
Judge Lehmann is a disgrace to the robe. She no longer conceals her pro-prosecution bias. She was also censured for two serious and ongoing ethics violations. She brings her personal social agenda into procedings and makes judgments of defendants on superficial criteria, like hair or clothing. She's a menace to defendant' rights.

Ms. Lehmann is totaly biased against male defendants. She should have been removed from the bench years ago. She can't control her emotions. No male defendant has a prayer inher courtroom if the accuser is a woman.

Comment #: NY864
This judge was recently censured for ethical violations and almost removed from office. She is extremely pro-prosecution. Continues to take uncounseled guilty pleas from 19-year-olds who would easily obtain a non-criminal disposition were they to obtain counsel. This judge has no business being on the bench.
