SECTION 24
Compensation of judges after removal
Judiciary (JUD) CHAPTER 30, ARTICLE 2
§ 24. Compensation of judges after removal. Any judge or justice of
any court who shall be removed pursuant to section nine of article six
of the constitution, for any cause not involving moral delinquency,
shall continue to receive, until the expiration of the term for which he
was elected, or until the time fixed by this section, a sum equal to
one-half of the salary of his office as fixed by law at the time of such
removal, to be paid to him at the same times and in the same manner as
said salary was payable when he was so removed. If said sum would exceed
three thousand dollars no greater sum shall be annually paid said judge
or justice than three thousand dollars. The payment of any sum pursuant
to the provisions of this section shall cease at the death of such judge
or justice or on the last day of December next after he shall be seventy
years of age, notwithstanding the term for which he was elected shall
not then have expired. No person shall be entitled to the benefit of
this section unless the resolution of removal shall state that he is
removed for a cause not involving moral delinquency, and shall recommend
the continuance of such compensation.
