Maine Revised Statutes

§1404. Regular retirement benefits

Any judge who resigned that judge's office or ceased to serve at the expiration of any term thereof, after attaining the age of 70 years and after having served on the Supreme Judicial Court, the Superior Court, the District Court, the Administrative Court or any combination of that service, for at least 7 years, or after attaining the age of 65 years and after having served as a judge on those courts for at least 12 years, or after attaining the age of 60 years and after having served as a judge on those courts for at least 20 years, is entitled to receive annually during the remainder of that judge's life, whether or not that judge is appointed an Active Retired Justice, a retirement benefit equal to 3/4 of the currently effective annual salary to be paid in the same manner as the salaries of the judges of that court from which that judge retired were paid prior to December 1, 1984. The right of any judge drawing a retirement benefit to continue to receive it ceases immediately if that judge acts as attorney or counsel or in any action or legal proceeding in which the State is an adverse party or has any interest adverse to the person or persons in whose behalf that judge acts. [2001, c. 12, §3 (AMD).]
