The Honorable Barbara A. Lane

Ventura County Superior Court, Department retired

Biography

The Hon. Barbara A. Lane (Ret.) was a judge for the Ventura County Superior Court in California. She was originally appointed to the Ventura Municipal Court in 1986 by former Governor George Deukmejian and was subsequently elevated to the Superior court as a result of the court's unification two years later. She retired from the bench on December 1, 2013, after serving 27 years as a judge.

She was registered as a Republican

Lane received her B.A. from Smith College in 1969. She went on to earn her J.D. from the University of Michigan in 1972.

Prior to her appointment to the Municipal Court, Lane practiced as a civil litigator with an emphasis on employment and business disputes.

Lane was named Judge of the Year by the Ventura County Trial Lawyers Association in 1997.

During her time on the bench, she presided over complex civil and environmental cases. In 1993, she was appointed to serve as the environmental law judge for Ventura County.

In 2016, the Ventura County Trial Lawyers Association presented the Superior Court with a formal portrait of Lane to be officially displayed in Courtroom 22 in the Hall of Justice.
