    Here's another article that talks about a hiring freeze...I hope this doesn't happen. All of a sudden the OCA has decided to retract from its previous hard line stance. What happened? Did Cuomo have a one on one with Lippman?

    Courts Budget

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) New York's judiciary has proposed trimming its budget by $100 million following criticism by Gov. Andrew Cuomo that its $2.7 billion spending plan for the upcoming fiscal year didn't cut deeply enough.

    Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman says Wednesday administrators will propose more cuts despite record caseloads related to a troubled economy, more foreclosures, evictions and other cases, and judges who haven't had raises in 13 years.

    The harsher measures may include a hiring freeze, possible layoffs and cutting aid to local courts.

    A commission will review possible pay raises for the 1,300 state-level judges.

    Lippman says major long-term savings could come from mandatory electronic filing of court documents and consolidating New York's 11 trial courts.

    Judges can wait longer for their pay raises. Judges make well over $100,000 per year. The consolidating of New York's 11 trial courts might lessen the need for more court officers.

    • Not that I'm a big fan of judges, but they haven't had a raise in 12 years.

      • Looking good does not matter here. Courts must be kept open. Back office personnel, i.e. court analysts, court planners can be dropped without impacting operations.

          Does that include Court Assistants? Are they considered non-essential? I am currently waiting on my CA results.

            But the thing that worries me the most is the fact that Lippman stated that there might be a hard hiring freeze.

              I assume that court assistants are not that essential. I could be wrong.

                  • speaking striclty opinion here-Im thinking, due to heightened security (homeland sec/terrorist threat awareness) CO lines would not be put on the chopping board. If the courts plan to keep on accomodating the civilians of New York, and the same ammount of bodies are moving in and out of each court house they wont be able to risk being short handed...just my thought though.

                        Are you referring to Court Assistants?

                          That crossed my mind as well but we won't know for sure until the budget is finalized. I feel for all you future COs that were in the canceled class. Hopefully at least they get you guys in this year!

                            • The Court Assistant title is a decendant of the old Assistant Court Clerk title. They perform an operational function in the lower courts. Their numbers could be in jeopardy when OCA fully implements electronic filing. A hard hiring freeze may have some soft spots. Just don't look for an academy class immediately after a budget is passed.

                                Thank you for the input! I was thinking the same about the future of the CA position with more technology and such. One thing technology will never replace is the need for security.
