Mandatory judicial retirement age. Increases the mandatory judicial retirement age from 73 to 75. This increase in mandatory retirement age includes judges subject to mandatory retirement during the 2022 Regular Session of the General Assembly and allows any sitting judge who has attained age 73 and has submitted a notice of retirement but not yet retired to revoke the notice of retirement by written request. The bill requires the revocation of any certification of need to fill the vacancy determined by the Judicial Council or Committee on District Courts based on the original notice of retirement if a written request to revoke the notice of retirement is submitted by the judge. The bill contains an emergency clause. Read the Bill »
