JUDGE GROUPS DELAY SUIT SEEKING RAISES NEW YORK — Four statewide judicial associations will put off until at least next week the filing of a suit seeking to have Gov. Eliot Spitzer and the state Legislature raise the pay of state court judges, representatives of the groups decided Tuesday in a conference call. Issues outstanding about the suit include where it will be filed and who will be designated as plaintiffs, said New York City Family Court Judge Barbara Salinitro. The group she heads, the New York City Family Court Judges Association, will join the state Family Court Judges Association, the city Criminal Court Judges Association and the Board of Judges of the Civil Court of the City of New York in sponsoring the suit. The groups had expected to file the action at the end of this week. In addition to the outstanding issues concerning the suit, the judicial organizations also want to see if there is any movement on a judicial pay bill in Albany when the state Legislature returns for a one-day session today, Judge Salinitro said. A bill approved by the Senate, but not yet the state Assembly, would give state court judges an average salary increase of 24 percent and create a commission to set future hikes for judges, state legislators and top state officials.
