NY Judge Benefits From Unlimited Sick Time

Manhattan judge reaps benefits of unlimited sick time policy for three years, collects $193G salary

No-show Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Daniel McCullough disappeared with an unspecified illness in April 2014.

“Don’t tell them anything!” McCullough snapped at a friend who tried to put him on the phone this week with a Daily News reporter.

McCullough, 65, has instead reaped the benefits of New York’s unlimited sick time policy for its judges across the last 32 months to the lucrative tune of $482,500.

McCullough’s appointment runs for nine years. He was appointed to the bench by ex-Gov. David Paterson in 2010.

His colleagues are now left to pick up the judicial slack as McCullough collects his full compensation — roughly $50,000-a-year over what he would receive if he retired now.

This is the kind of behavior that puts municipalities in deep debt.
