The judge who used swear language concerning a racist could be in trouble

Judge Patricia Lynch called John Hennigan a “bit of a c**t”, and he wrote a complaint to her, willing the judge to be responsible for her words. Hennigan, as he was being jailed for his ninth breach of anti-social behaviour order in 11 years, went on a tirade, calling Justice Lynch “a bit of a c**t”. But the judge hit back, calling the 50-year-old “a bit of a c**t yourself. Being offensive to me does not help.”

Hennigan, as he was being jailed for his ninth breach of anti-social behaviour order in 11 years, went on a tirade, calling Justice Lynch “a bit of a c**t”. But the judge hit back, calling the 50-year-old “a bit of a c**t yourself. Being offensive to me does not help.” Then, Hennigan, apparently unwilling to give up, shouted: “Go f**k yourself”, to which Justice Lynch replied: “You too”. The man, described by Twitter user Stan Keaton as a “racist thug” was imprisoned for 1.5 years. He had been charged with making racist slurs toward a black mother in Harlow, Essex. But despite being widely celebrated, the judge will now be investigated after a complaint was made about her to the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office. The JCIO handles complaints about judges in and out of court.

A spokesman said: “The JCIO has received complaints regarding HHJ (Her Honour Judge) Patricia Lynch’s comment in court which will be considered in accordance with the Judicial Conduct (Judicial and other office holders) Rules 2014.”
