This bill provides that retired justices and judges who are collecting a pension or retirement allowance pursuant to the "Judicial Retirement System Act," P.L.1973, c.140 (C.43:6A-1 et seq.), are eligible for recall duties until 85 years of age. Currently, a retired justice or judge cannot serve on temporary recall assignment beyond 80 years of age, based on a court directive issued by the Administrative Office of the Courts, Directive #12-01, "Policy Governing Recall for Temporary Service Within the Judicial System." In determining to increase, by five years, the age of retired justices' and judges' eligibility for recall duties, the Legislature is exercising its authority under the Constitution concerning the establishment and operation of a system for justices' and judges' retirement. See N.J. Const. (1947), Art. VI, Sec. VI, par. 3; State v. Buckner, No. A-0630-12T1, 2014 N.J. Super. LEXIS 60, at *19-20, *31-33 (App. Div. May 5, 2014) (upholding Legislature's authority to provide for temporary recall of retired justices and judges past the constitutionally mandated retirement age of 70).
