A Philadelphia judge sues to reinstate pay raises. As expected the pay raise repeal has already become the target of a lawsuit. The judge in this case claims the repeal of judges pay raise is a violation of the Pennsylvania Constitution. Clearly an example of a public servant looking to protect citizens from a violation of our constitutional rights.
Some may accuse this lawsuit as representing another example of our elected official using their office purely for their own self-interest. Nonesense says I. Certainly he merely wants to uphold the law.
Maybe this judge also fought to defend us against the unconstitutional “unvouchered expenses” as well. Maybe he is fighting for others and declined the pay raise for himself to remove the appearance of impropriety.
- Maybe he has a justifiable reason I just can’t think of.
