Judge Pierce retiring from circuit court bench

Judge Lynne A. Pierce is retiring after more than 30 years of service as a judge. Elected to the Wayne County Circuit Court in 2008, Pierce is  assigned to the Family Division. She currently presides over domestic disputes, including divorce, paternity, custody, and parenting time issues, whereas previously she handled delinquency, abuse, and neglect cases. For 17 years prior to 2008, Pierce served as the municipal court judge for Grosse Pointe Woods and Grosse Pointe Shores. 

A graduate of the Detroit College of Law, Pierce initiated and presented the “Critical Life Choices” program at Grosse Pointe North High School. Pierce also cochaired the “Running and Winning” workshop for teenage girls interested in the political process.

She first became known among local civil rights activists after writing an op-ed in the Detroit Free Press condemning ethnic profiling after the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks.

Well wishers will have the opportunity to congratulate Pierce on Thursday, August 18, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. in Room 1511 of the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center in Detroit.
