This is a tale of how things get done — or don’t quite get done, as it turns out — when a bureaucratic snafu, judges’ retirement planning and politics collide in the Legislature’s end-of-session crush of activity.

Our story’s protagonists are several dozen judges who took the bench before 1995. These jurists qualify for full yearly pension payments after completing 20 years of service and turning 60 years old.
