Item 40 #1h

Judicial Department
Supreme Court


Page 25, after line 14, insert:

"K. That, notwithstanding the provisions of § 17.1-106, any person who transferred service credit from the Judicial Retirement System under the provisions of § 51.1-303 to the Virginia Retirement System and retired under the Virginia Retirement System after January 1, 2014 but prior to May 1, 2014, may be recalled under the provisions of  § 17.1-106 as a long such person does not engage in the practice of law within or without the Commonwealth."


(This amendment allows persons who used to be judges under the JRS, but retired under the regular VRS between January 1 and May 1 of 2014, to sit as temporary recalled judge. Currently you have to have retired from JRS to be a recalled judge. Recalled judges can sit in circuit court while substitute judges are limited to district court.)
