Judges; retirement allowance and service after retirement. Provides that the annual retirement allowance of any person who has served as a judge but retires under a different defined benefit retirement plan shall not exceed 78 percent of the person's average final compensation, unless such person after ceasing to be a judge performs five or more years of creditable service under such other defined benefit retirement plan. However, in no case shall such person's annual retirement allowance exceed 100 percent of his average final compensation. The bill clarifies that only those persons who retired as a judge or justice may serve as a senior jurist on the Supreme Court or the Court of Appeals. The bill also contains technical amendments.
