Kaye Makes the Case for Judicial Raises

New York State Chief Justice Judy Kaye is not happy with Eliot Spitzer, and she doesn’t think his peacemaking rhetoric is worth much.

In an interview with Kaye today on WNBC’s News Forum, she reacted to a clip of Spitzer taking about how he “hopes” for and “supports” judicial pay raises, by saying:

“Words, words, words! Not bankable. And I listened very closely. That word maybe is a solid capital Maybe in big red letters. Maybe, maybe.” 

Kaye has been making the rounds pleading her case for raises. Yesterday, she and another judge sat with the Daily News editorial board discussing the issue.
