While a member of the Suffolk Journal of Trial & Appellate Advocacy, Lindy published a case comment on the challenges gay and lesbian parents face if they have children and their relationship with their partner deteriorates. She specifically highlighted Hunter v. Rose, a landmark case in Massachusetts, where the Supreme Judicial Court awarded primary physical custody of a child to the non-biological parent. Her case comment can be found at 19 Suffolk J. Trial & App. Adv. 445 (2014).
