Stymied so far in efforts to lobby Albany for a judicial pay increase, New York state court administrators said Thursday they have found funds to give each judge up to $5,000 a year to reimburse them for job-related expenses ranging from uncovered medical costs to judicial robe purchases. The 1,300 state judges will also receive more vacation time. Chief Administrative Judge Ann Pfau said court administrators were continuing to lobby Gov. Eliot Spitzer and the Legislature for a pay hike.
