NJ Supreme Court: Judges do not have to put in more for benefits

EDISON - The New Jersey Supreme Court has ruled that judges do not have to put in more for their health benefits and pensions.

Hudson County Superior Court Judge Paul DePascale sued the state last year saying Gov. Chris Christie's law asking public workers to contribute more to their pension and benefits should not apply to judges because it would result in a pay decrease.

DePascale argued there's already a law in place that sets judge's benefits and does not allow them to be reduced.

Christie has said that he would put the issue on the ballot in November if the courts disagreed.
