Judicial Candidates Accepting Donations From Lawyers…..not a wise policy

Thanks to our friends at “auburntownship.org” for this article on candidates for judge.  LFC does not endorse any candidates, but this is a follow up to a previous post that we had regarding the policy of judicial candidates accepting donations from lawyers that may appear before them in court.

This policy is not illegal, but it certainly does not meet our standard of elected officials avoiding, at all costs, any hint or perception of impropriety.

COURT OF APPEALS CANDIDATE LYNCH REJECTS CONTRIBUTIONS FROM LEGAL PROFESSION; 60% OF COMPETITOR’S FUNDS COME FROM BIG LAW
Published Wednesday October 17, 2018

Bainbridge attorney Matthew Lynch, a candidate for the Eleventh District Court of Appeals, chose the Kenston High School Candidates’ Night on October 15, 2018, to explain that he rejects contributions from the legal profession in order to avoid any appearance of impropriety with regard to the adjudication of litigation.

His competitor for the same Eleventh District Court of Appeals seat admitted receiving more than $28,000 of her $50,000 funding from members of her own legal profession.


The in-person voting occurs from 6:30 AM to 7:30 PM on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, at your usual location. Don’t forget your personal photo identification (your driver’s license).
Do you think such an admission could compromise the impartiality of this individual in litigation brought before her at the Court of Appeals?
