    So he's pissed because he'll have to pay for something he's receiving...is that about it? And in what manner is this unconstitutional? The article didn't say.

    Re: N.J. judge sues state, says increased pension and health benefits costs should no

    Is it reasonable to think there's a possibility that the suit could have any merit? Or is it an incontrovertible and foregone conclusion that the suit is entirely baseless?
    I may be wrong.

    Yeah, I saw this headline in my copy of The Star Ledger and I think its pretty arrogant. Everyone else is having to pay for their pension and health benefits, what makes judges so different?

    It isn't "baseless" but he's going to lose. What I believe Simon is alluding to is the arguement that the legislation would punish a judge for ruling against them by raising their out of pocket costs.

    So the solution would be to remove their pensions completely. There are no Constitutional rights to a pension.

    No the suit does have merit if he fought it as unconstitutional for ALL PUBLIC employees...whats ludicrous is that he just wants himself and his judge buddies exempted from what HE SAYS is an unconstitutional law...hes a jackass

    Has anyone read the filing to know the grounds of the case?
    I may be wrong.

    I'm curious, too. I'd like to know what argument is being made in regards to constitutionality.
