Big pensions for short Judicial terms causes debate in legislature

The typically routine process of confirming state judges is turning into a testy debate about Connecticut's system for awarding judicial pensions worth about $100,000 a year.  Lawmakers in the Senate and House voiced concerns about confirming older judges who won't finish a full eight-year term before reaching the mandatory retirement age of 70.
