CHAPTER 7. ASSIGNMENT OF JUDGES
ASSIGNMENT AND TRANSFER OF JUDGES
Rule 701. Assignment of Judges to Courts.
(a) Certification of availability for assignment by former or retired judges. A former or retired judge who consents to accept assignment on temporary judicial service shall file with the Administrative Office a statement of the period during which he is willing to be assigned to a court, and a certification that he has not, since his last judicial duty, engaged in the practice of law or in any activity incompatible with judicial office and does not intend to engage in the practice of law in the future. Excepting those in appellate senior judge status, senior judge status shall end at age seventy-five; however, those serving in senior judge status as of the effective date of this rule may continue to do so notwithstanding the age seventy-five limitation. In order to be qualified for assignment, such judge shall not have been defeated for re-election and shall have served as a judge (whether or not continuously or on the same court) by election or appointment for an aggregate of at least ten years, except that any duly elected justice or judge, having an aggregate of five years' judicial service or seniority, who is required to retire at age seventy, shall be eligible for assignment. Suitable facilities and adequate staff are to be provided for senior judges, the parameters of which are to be determined and promulgated by the Administrative Office.
