Lynn KING, Jurist: 1944-2005
A partner in the first all-female law firm in Toronto, she became a highly respected provincial court judge who brought a human touch to her family law courtroom, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, March 22, 2005, Page S9
The law was as familiar as family for Madam Justice Lynn KING. Her father, her uncle and her aunt were all judges. And yet there was nothing traditional about her approach to the law, either as a lawyer or as a judge.
"She was completely fearless. She didn't care what anybody thought, which is a great strength in a judge," said Mr. Justice Brent KNAZAN of the Ontario Provincial Court. As an illustration, he referred to her 1991 judgment when she ruled that keeping young offenders in overcrowded and filthy holding cells without adequate access to counsel constituted cruel and unusual treatment and violated the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
"She took a personal interest in every kid who stood up in front of her," said Mr. Justice Brian WEAGANT of the Ontario Provincial Court, who had appeared before her many times as a defence counsel. She was in the vanguard of pushing for easy access to expert representation, he said. After Judge WEAGANT was appointed to the bench, he found her extremely supportive as a colleague.
"Lynn had the ability to make every person in her courtroom feel like a human being," said Madam Justice Harriet SACHS of the Ontario Provincial Court. She described how Judge KING, her former law partner and friend, created an atmosphere -- especially in youth court -- in which teenagers felt she was seeing them as people rather than as young offenders.
Judge KING, she said, was a leader both as a lawyer and as a judge, and intuitively understood what was just. "She had the intellectual capacity to reason her way, but she also had such an instinct for justice."
"She was very kind, extremely generous and very fair -- everything I try to be," said Judge KING's older son, Jonah, 22, a student at Trent University in Peterborough. "She didn't have a biased bone in her body."
Lynn KING grew up on the shores of Ramsay Lake in Sudbury, one of three children of Harry and Madelaine WAISBERG. There's a story Judge KING loved to tell about how, as a child, she showed up at school in the depths of winter without a hat or mittens. An outraged teacher called her mother demanding to know how Mrs. WAISBERG could let her daughter leave the house without winter clothing. "Wait until you get to know Lynn," her mother replied calmly.
In 1961, in her final year of high school, her parents sent her to board at Toronto's Branksome Hall, where she met her lifelong friend Wendy WRIGHT, now an assignment editor at CTV News. "We were the only two Jewish girls in residence," Ms. WRIGHT recalled yesterday. "We didn't look at all alike, but they kept getting us confused and, to this day, we still giggle about whether they could see past our religion."
Describing her friend as a very giving woman, Ms. WRIGHT said "her sense of humour was what was so thrilling and the ray of light that got me through that year. She was brilliant in high school; she had insight beyond her years and a sense of social responsibility that was clearly developed by then."
Judge KING then went to the University of Toronto, where she earned a degree in economics, followed by a master's degree from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts., and then back to the University of Toronto for a law degree. She was called to the bar in 1973, in the incremental wave of women that began receiving law degrees in Canada. A committed social activist, she began practising with Paul COPELAND and her then husband, Greg KING, in a small law office in midtown Toronto. "She was a progressive person with a heart of gold who did a nice job for her clients," said Mr. COPELAND, mentioning that Judge KING mainly did matrimonial work when she was his law partner.
After her marriage broke up, she left Copeland King and taught at Osgoode Hall for a year before joining lawyers Mary CORNISH and Harriet SACHS to form Cornish King and Sachs in 1976, the first all-female law firm in Toronto.
"I prefer to control my own work, to choose my partners and clients, to focus on women's issues," she told journalist Judy STEED in a 1980 article on women lawyers. Ms. CORNISH said: "She was very active in using the law as an instrument of social change, and she did it in a number of different ways as a lawyer and a judge, especially around gender issues in terms of family law and, ultimately, youth justice."
Judge SACHS added: "She had an enormous capacity for empathy and it never compromised her ability to see the essence of a situation."
In 1980, Lynn KING wrote What Every Woman Should Know About Marriage, Separation and Divorce, a guide written from a woman's point of view that focused on the financial, legal and business side of marriage. In 1986, she co-authored Women Against Censorship.
She met her second husband, writer M.T. (Terry) KELLY, in 1979. At the time, he was writing a relationship column for The Globe and he went to her law office to interview her about the acrimony that seems so inevitable a part of divorce. "She wouldn't go out with me for a year," he said yesterday. They met again at a party and he was "just enchanted" because she was "so beautiful and elegant and smart."
An unlikely couple in some ways -- she a legal expert and an urbanite, he a writer and an aspiring canoeist -- they meshed their different lifestyles and interests in a loving partnership that lasted for nearly 25 years. "I found her very sensitive and all the things a lawyer has to be -- and a very different kind of mind from mine."
After working as a lawyer for 13 years, she was appointed a provincial court judge at 41 by then Ontario attorney-general Ian SCOTT in David PETERSON's Liberal government. Journalist June CALLWOOD described Ms. KING "grinning with delight and nervousness" on her first day on the bench in an 1986 article for The Globe.
As a lawyer, she had successfully argued before the Ontario Supreme Court that the province's censorship law was unconstitutional. Despite that high profile, she welcomed the appointment to the bench. "A lawyer presents only one side of the case," she told Ms. CALLWOOD. " The judge can't be so cavalier. A judge is required to be sensible and responsible, but a judge is also able to be creative. I wanted to be able to make the decisions that I used to wish judges would make."
She delighted in gossip and loved to party, and she had a passion for crossword puzzles and matchmaking, frequently trying to fix people up, even those who were already committed to other partners. "Nobody minded because she was so engaging and funny," said Judge SACHS.
"She was one of these mothers who loved her kids for who they were," continued Judge SACHS. " She didn't want them to be little replicas of her, but she was always in their corner. She respected them as people and she was endlessly delighted by them."
Judge KING was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of 1999. She continued to work around treatment as the disease went into remission and then metastasized. She went on disability late in 2004 and made her last public appearance at a Boxing Day party, appearing frail but elegant in a black velvet dress. In her final days, her husband said, she watched both soap operas and the televised proceedings of the Gomery inquiry into the federal sponsorship scandal. She died at home in his arms.
Lynn KING was born on April 19, 1944, in Sudbury, Ontario She died on Friday of breast cancer at home in Toronto. She was 60. She is survived by her husband, M.T. (Terry) KELLY, her sons Jonah and Max, her mother, two siblings and their families. The funeral is today at Mount Pleasant Cemetery Chapel in Toronto.

Lynn KING: Protector of youths' rights
Justice Lynn KING became known for the human touch
As a lawyer, was an advocate for women during divorce
By Gabe GONDA, Staff Reporter, Page B5
Justice Lynn KING was a forceful and humane ally of young people caught up in the chaos of the legal system.
From her bench in the courts of 311 Jarvis Street, KING delivered sometimes tough, often compassionate justice in family matters and to a generation of young offenders, once challenging the provincial government on their behalf.
KING was appointed a judge in 1986 after a distinguished career in family law that led her to write What Every Woman Should Know About Marriage, Separation And Divorce. The book was published in 1980 and solidified its author's reputation as a leading advocate of women's rights during a time of rising divorce rates.
She died of breast cancer on Friday at the age of 60.
Born in Sudbury on April 19, 1944, to Harry WAISBERG, a lawyer and alderman, and his wife Madelaine, KING left home before her final year of high school to attend Toronto's Branksome Hall. She was one of two Jewish girls in her class.
KING studied economics at the University of Toronto and returned to her alma mater for a law degree after getting an M.A. at the Fletcher School for Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Boston.
After graduating, KING went into practice with then-husband Greg KING and Paul COPELAND. In 1976, she formed a partnership with Harriet SACHS, later a colleague in family court.
When KING was appointed to the bench, she quickly made an impact in the area that would define her career as a judge: the rights of young people who found themselves on the wrong side of the law.
In July 1988, KING ruled that a 15-year-old Toronto boy's Charter rights had been violated because he wasn't offered a chance to write an essay or do other forms of community work to pay for his crime. KING was challenging the province to offer teens alternative sentencing options, which were being provided by other provinces under the Young Offenders Act. That ruling was overturned on appeal.
When KING wasn't occupied with high-profile constitutional cases, she was developing the human touch that made her a role model to her judicial colleagues and the lawyers who argued before her.
Justice Brian WEAGANT ran a youth legal clinic before serving beside KING as a judge. He remembers a case in the late 1980s in which a teen he was representing had been charged with assault after defending his sister during a scuffle in a store.
The teen, who'd recently moved with his family from South America, wanted to plead guilty, so WEAGANT advised him to put on his best clothes before going to court to see KING.
"He and his family went to the Salvation Army and got him a tuxedo, which he wore to court. Judge KING was just totally disarmed by this and she ended up discharging him. Sure enough, he was never in trouble again," WEAGANT said.
Justice SACHS described the young man in the tuxedo as "one of thousands" touched by KING's interventions.
On the side, KING wrote book reviews for the Toronto Star.
Her husband, novelist M.T. KELLY, said her interests remained varied to the end. During her final weeks, she entertained herself by watching the Gomery inquiry and listening to rapper Eminem, a habit that amused her sons, Jonah and Max.
"She was beautiful," KELLY said.
A service will be held today at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery Chapel at 3 p.m.
