The National Center for State Courts (NCSC) has been gathering data on judicial salaries across the country for decades. At the end of January, it published its latest batch of numbers, showing that while pay has been rising sharply for general jurisdiction judges in New York, the dollar still goes the furthest for those on the bench down in Tennessee.

A analysis of judicial salary data for state courts of general jurisdiction – also called trial courts, the tier just below the state appellate courts – shows that New York judicial salaries have increased the most compared with other states, growing 52 percent over the past decade. Hawaii was not far behind, with 50 percent growth over the same period. Meanwhile, pay for judges at the same tier in Texas has been flat since 2014.
