The lawyers are talking about it all over Worcester, Mass. Who’s to get the $66,000-per-year, 8 a.m.-to-4:30 p.m. job (with six weeks of paid vacation) of first assistant register of probate? According to the The Worcester Telegram & Gazette, Judge Joseph Lian Jr., first justice of the Worcester Division of the commonwealth’s Probate and Family Court, named local politician Stephen G. Abraham for the position. But Abraham backed out because he would have had to vacate his seat on the Worcester City Council — state law bars holders of court-appointed jobs from politics. Judge Lian then submitted another candidate for approval, but he then went on vacation. During this period, the job remained unfilled. Special skills required? The first assistant register of probate helps make sure the court’s papers arrive where they are supposed to go.
