Los Angeles County Judges Take Voluntary Pay Cut

Taking a cue from their brethren and sistren in Delaware, Los Angeles County judges have volunteered to give up one day’s pay per month, as other court employees deal with involuntary salary cuts.

The judges are each giving up around $688 each month, saving the County $3 million a year. Under the state constitution, judicial officers’ salaries cannot be reduced during their term.

All but seven of the court’s 430 judges are participating.

Los Angeles County courthouses will close this Wednesday, part of a cost-cutting plan.

    Hello people.
    These judges just got an extra $10,000, on top of their $47,000, illegal payments by LA county. Do the math, one day’s pay “voluntarily” given up, but $10,000 more a year. After getting an illegal bill passed, granting them “immunity” for twenty years of criminal activity, gee, how noble.

    To the first poster: there’s no “thinking” needed. The corruption in our judicial system is so rampant, law means nothing anymore, except to citizens. And, don’t bother notifying the FBI or DOJ, they’ve been aware of it for years, but refuse to investigate, knowing the whole system will collapse. Our courts are the most corrupt of any country in the world, yet, we let them get away with it.

    I was just looking at the caption up to the right that say’s “California supreme court grants whistleblower protection”. Richard Fine is in jail for blowing the whistle on the California superior court, how ironic. He’s also a victim of false imprisonment, and elder abuse, committed by a homegrown terrorist, that also works for the court.
