Retired judges of the court of appeals
Judiciary (JUD) CHAPTER 30, ARTICLE 4-A
§ 114. Retired judges of the court of appeals. 1. Any judge of the
court of appeals, retired pursuant to subdivision b of section
twenty-five of article six of the constitution, may, upon his
application, be certified by the administrative board for service as a
justice of the supreme court upon findings (a) that he has the mental
and physical capacity to perform the duties of such office and (b) that
his services are necessary to expedite the business of the supreme
court. A copy of such certificate shall be filed with the appellate
division of the department in which such retired judge resides and in
the office of court administration.

2. Any such certification shall be valid for a term of two years
beginning on the date of filing the certificate. At the expiration of
such term, the retired judge may be certified for additional terms of
two years each by the administrative board upon findings of continued
mental and physical capacity and need for his services. No retired judge
may serve under any such certification beyond the last day of December
in the year in which he reaches the age of seventy-six.

3. A retired judge so certified shall for all purposes, other than
determining the number of justices in a judicial district for the
purposes of subdivision d of section six of article six of the
constitution and section one hundred forty-a of this chapter, but
including powers, duties, salary, status and rights, be a justice of the
supreme court in the district in which he resides when so certified. A
retired judge shall be subject to assignment by the appellate division
of the supreme court of the judicial department of his residence.

4. The provisions of this section shall also be applicable to a judge
who has not yet reached the age of seventy-six and who reached the age
of seventy and retired as a judge of the court of appeals prior to the
effective date of this section.
