Unintended Consequences of Judicial Greed #615-3
March 4, 20143 Comments
Paul Orfanedes, Litigation Director for Judicial Watch, charges that SBX 211, the law which now allows judges to continue to receive pay above and beyond their salaries, contradicts the California Constitution without a vote by the people. Orfanedes notes that judges must receive compensation of some kind, but they continue to accept remuneration that is a conflict of the ethics code. He questions how judges would still accept double benefits, understanding the moral impact.
