The judiciary would be bringing a “frivolous lawsuit” if it takes political leaders to court to demand a raise for New York’s 1,200 judges, Gov. Eliot Spitzer said Friday as legislators again prepared to leave Albany without voting judges a raise.

Having said all that, I don’t think litigation will be successful.”
