What others have said about Hon. Barbara Lynaugh


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY9538
Just about the worst type of juror on the bench. There's no law behind her decisions and their is ab obvious favoritism towards certain attorneys.

My attorney was astounded by the lack of professionalism and knowledge displayed by this "judge."


Comment #: NY9315
I was treated fairly by Judge Lynaugh in my case.


Comment #: NY7579
horrible and rude nasty doesn't care about the children she says shes supposedly defending! ive seen nothing but negative stuff written about her, and then I encountered her and she lied about me being prepared for an upward modification! didn't look at any of my paperwork or my exs w2's, paystubs, and then sent a denial in the mail saying I had none of the above, when I did and even asked her if she wanted it and she said no! how do you base your decision then???? horrible! should have NOTHING to do with the justice system!

This judge has been benefiting in secret from the proceeds of mortgage fraud from Fannie Mae for more than a decade. (An additional perk of the job.)

An even-handed and wise jurist.
