O'Connor Lauds Judicial Pay Raises, Specialty Dockets In State Of Judiciary Address

Chief Justice O'Connor

Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor praised the legislature's recent approval of long-awaited judicial pay increases during her annual State of the Judiciary Address Thursday, but cautioned that funding for the final two raises is not guaranteed.

While the biennial budget (HB 64*) included statutory language calling for 5% market adjustments that will begin later this month and reoccur in 2017, 2018 and 2019, the two-year spending bill only funds the first two increases, the chief justice told judges attending the event.
