A New Jersey jurist who earns $165,000 a year insists that it’s unconstitutional for the state to require him to contribute more to his pension.
The fact that cops, firefighters, teachers and other public employees in New Jersey are shouldering painful pen/ben cuts doesn’t seem to faze Hudson County Superior Court Judge Paul DePascale.
He’s filed suit to block increases in annual pension contributions by judges such as himself.
“Outrageous,” Gov. Chris Christie tells NJ 101.5 radio host Jim Gearhart. "The highest paid public employees in New Jersey are (trying) to use the constitution to get out of paying their fair share."
