Judicial Pay Increase Causes Concern Among State’s Taxpayers

Judicial Pay Increase Causes Concern Among State’s Taxpayers

What: Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Edward H. Lehner yesterday gave the Legislature and Governor David A. Paterson 90 days to adjust the pay of the state’s 1,300 judges to reflect the rise in the cost of living since their last raise nearly 10 years ago.

A poll by Siena College Research Institute found that out of 622 New York registered voters polled, 55% of them were opposed to the pay raise. The raise will impact taxpayers statewide who are struggling with the same high cost of living.

Who: Former New York State Assembly Minority Deputy Legislative Director Thomas J. Carr, Esq. is available for independent expert commentary, analysis, or questions involving this situation. Members of the media may utilize Carr’s knowledge and experience involving New York State law and the judicial system.

When: Carr is available via phone or in-person at the firm’s Albany, New York office or in-studio at your convenience.
