Overpaid Judge Censured

A judge who was paid in excess of the statutory cap on salary paid to judges employed by more than one municipality has been censured by the Utah Supreme Court.

The payments were made over the period from 2009 to 2011.

In addition to the censure, the judge must make restitution of the amounts in excess of the cap.

The court held that the judge had not preserved his argument that the cap was unconstitutional. (Mike Frisch)
