Judicial Division Retirees Temporary Judicial Duties Compensation

Concerning modifications to the policies governing judicial division retirees returning to temporary judicial duties, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
Session:
2021 Regular Session
Subject:
Courts & Judicial
Bill Summary

Under current law, a retired member of the judicial division may perform assigned judicial duties without pay for not less than 60 or 90 days each year. Such a member of the judicial division will receive a benefit increase equal to not less than 20% or more than 30% of the current monthly salary of judges serving in the same position held by the retiree at the time of retirement.

The bill changes the amount of time that a retired member of the judicial division may perform assigned judicial duties without pay and the amount of a benefit increase such a judge will receive. The bill specifies that a retired member of the judicial division may perform assigned judicial duties without pay for 10, 20, 30, 60, or 90 days each year and will receive a benefit increase equal to 3.3%, 6.7%, 10%, 20%, or no more than 30% respectively of the current monthly salary of judges serving in the same position held by the retiree at the time of retirement.

Additionally, under current law, within 5 years after retirement, a retired member of the judicial division who did not enter into an agreement prior to retirement to perform assigned judicial duties without pay during retirement may enter into such a written agreement within 30 days prior to each anniversary date of retirement. The bill removes this requirement.

The bill also states that the following retirees from the judicial division are not eligible to perform the assigned judicial duties described above:

  • Retirees who received "a does not meet performance standards" or "do not retain" recommendation in their last judicial performance evaluation before retirement, either published or unpublished;
  • Retirees who received a disciplinary disposition from the commission on judicial discipline or private admonishment, private reprimand, private censure, public reprimand, public censure, suspension, or removal; and
  • Retirees who, during or after their term in office, received private or public discipline from the office of the presiding disciplinary judge.
