Maryland To Save $600,000 in Judges' Leave

Maryland's highest court has approved reducing five vacation days for 285 active judges because of the state's fiscal problems. The seven-member Court of Appeals voted unanimously for the rules change. State judges normally receive 27 days of paid leave, but next year they'll receive 22.

The state will save roughly $600,000 from the leave reduction, because there will be less need to recall retired judges to do legal work.
