A New York Supreme Court justice says he plans to resign by the end of this month due to "the present unfortunate status of New York State's judiciary." Justice Robert F. Julian, who has not received a pay raise since he took office in 2001, signaled his intention in a letter sent to Gov. Eliot Spitzer and e-mailed to the state's 1,300 judges. Julian, who earns $136,700 a year, wrote, "I am unwilling to further deplete my savings and reduce my lifestyle to continue in office."
