§ 121.2. Associate district judges--Salary determination
A. For purposes of determining the salaries of Associate District Judges, the Federal Decennial Census shall be used to determine the population of the county.
B. Provided, however, in those counties in which the population, according to the 1990 Federal Decennial Census, has fallen below the population threshold for salary determination, the salary of a sitting Associate District Judge shall not be lowered below the salary for the population threshold for salary determination based upon the population according to the 1980 Federal Decennial Census.
C. Provided, however, in those counties in which the population, according to the 1980 and 1990 Federal Decennial Censuses, was below the population threshold for salary determination, but the population rose above the population threshold for salary determination between the 1980 and 1990 Federal Decennial Censuses, the salary of an Associate District Judge continuing in office or initially elected in 1994 shall not be lowered if the judge or predecessor of the judge received a salary increase during the time the population of the county rose above the threshold population. Within forty-five (45) days after the effective date of this act,1 any judge who is subject to the provisions of this subsection and whose salary was reduced shall receive a one-time payment, in an amount equal to the difference of the amount of their base pay after the reduction and the amount their base pay would have been if the reduction had not occurred.
