Nothing is more uncomfortable than judges suing the state over their own benefits or compensation. It isn’t that judges shouldn’t access the courts, but in the court of public opinion, no one wins. Like it or not, it does happen.

 The Courthouse News Service reports that over 80 California judges are suing the state for miscalculating their retirement benefits, cancelling their health benefits, and delaying or denying payment of other benefit claims.
