Honorable Gregory G. Lyman

Retention year: 1998
Recommendation: Retain

The Sixth Judicial District Commission on Judicial Performance recommends that Judge Gregory G. Lyman BE RETAINED.

Judge Lyman was appointed to the District Court on June 1, 1996. He handles primarily civil, criminal, probate, and domestic relations matters. Prior to his appointment, he was the District Attorney for the Sixth Judicial District.

An overwhelming majority of those surveyed by the Commission, including attorneys, jurors, law enforcement, court personnel, social services workers, victims and litigants gave high praise to Judge Lyman for his courteous demeanor, professionalism, and fairness in determining issues presented to him for judicial review.

The only weakness perceived by the Commission as a result of such responses concerned delays in issuing rulings in some civil matters. Judge Lyman advised the Commission that he is actively reducing the backlog of civil matters and that his docket is up to date in criminal, probate and domestic matters. Efforts are continuing to obtain state funding for additional court staff, which would assist in reducing any backlog in rulings.

Judge Lyman continues to be a great asset to the community both personally and professionally. He is seen as accessible and approachable. Among his many volunteer activities, he enjoys coaching youth baseball. He is proud of his efforts toward establishing an alternative dispute resolution program in the Sixth Judicial District and he has assisted the Court Administrator in obtaining state funding for a coordinator to implement this program.
