Judicial panel to seek 10% raise for judges

February 08, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

The Judicial Compensation Commission is seeking 10 percent pay raises for Maryland judges this year even though most state employees will get no raise.

Elizabeth Buck, one of seven panel members, said yesterday that judges have not had a raise in several years, and "Their workload has gotten harder and bigger."

The largest increase would go to the six Court of Appeals associate judges, whose annual pay would increase by $10,400 to $114,500. The smallest increase would be $8,500 for 99 District Court judges, making their pay $95,000.
