People have been asking Dallas lawyer Mike Lynn what it was going to be like being married to a federal judge. And when he took the podium at wife Barbara M.G. Lynn’s investiture ceremony, he finally had the perfect answer: “She’s been my judge for 27 years – now she’s your judge.” That seemed just fine by the Texas legal community, who sent some of its brightest stars to watch her assume her place on the bench. Barbara Lynn, named among the 50 most influential women lawyers in the country in 1998 by the National Law Journal also tapped some big names to speak on her behalf. Philip S.Anderson, immediate past president of the American Bar Association thanked her for heading up the organization’s Litigation Section from 1998 to 1999, and Congressman Martin Frost stated that the approval of Lynn’s nomination was the crowning achievement of his career. U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison added a welcome dose of humor by noting that the investiture was the ultimate Valentine’s Day present to Judge Lynn’s husband: “I love you, dear. And I’m taking a 50 percent pay cut.”
