Charles Francis Lynch

Charles Francis Lynch (January 9, 1884 - June 17, 1942) was a United States Attorney and a United States district court judge in New Jersey.


Born in Franklin, New Jersey, Lynch entered the bar by reading law in 1906, immediately entering private practice in Paterson, New Jersey. In 1913 he became a second assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey, moving up to first assistant U.S. attorney the following year, and becoming the U.S. Attorney for the district in 1916. He was nominated by President Woodrow Wilson on June 16, 1919, to a district court seat vacated by Thomas G. Haight. Lynch was confirmed by the Senate on July 1, 1919, and received his commission the same day. He resigned from the bench on March 31, 1925, resuming a private practice in Newark, New Jersey until his death.
