New York state judges are pressing court administrators to keep in place a $10,000 stipend provided to the judges in recognition of their years without a raise even after the judges begin receiving higher pay recommended last month by a special judicial compensation commission.

The commission recommended pushing annual salaries for state Supreme Court justices from $136,700 to $160,000 starting on April 1, 2012; to $167,000 beginning April 1, 2013; and to $174,000 beginning April 1, 2014. Other judges will get proportional raises, if the Legislature and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo do not alter the recommendations over the next six months.
