Retire Mandatory Judicial Retirement:
""[J]ustices and judges shall be retired upon attaining the age of 70 years." — N.J. Const. art. VI, §VI, ¶3
Why should that be? The citizens of New Jersey have just amended the state constitution to say that judges, like other state employees, should have their pay cut to ease the burden of benefit costs on taxpayers. We opposed the measure but voters had the last word. If judges are to be treated like other employees, perhaps they should be terminable at the expiration of a term or for cause but not compelled to leave the bench upon reaching age 70." 'via Blog this'
