U.S. Appeals Judge Peter Hall of New York City; partying loser

 
President George W. Bush was duped into appointing Peter to a seat on the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City in late 2003. Peter was appointed despite the fact that he had absoleyt no prior judicial experience.
 
Peter found it acceptable to spend an inordinate amount of time on the taxpayer dime to serve as the chair of the CLE (Continuing Legal Education) Planning Committee for the Federal Bar Council’s Winter Bench & Bar Conference that was held at the Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico. The taxpayer funded vacation began on Saturday, February 19, 2011 and ended on the following Saturday.
 
Peter found it acceptable to hose the taxpayers for $3,550 in wages while he was frolicking in the sun in Los Cabos. The total cost of the taxpayer funded vacation was $10,790 for a couple and $6,790 for single persons. Some of the activities having nothing to do
  1. Tennis for mixed couples – 2 hours
  2. Deep Sea Fishing Tournament – 5 hours
  3. Golf Tournament at the Palmilla Golf Club – 5 hours
  4. Kool Karaoke Kontest – 5 hours
Peter is one of the ingrates that believe he and his fellow federal judges are entitled to a 50% wage increase. Peter would then be earning about $275,000 a year in wages.
 
Five years from now in 2017, Peter will be eligible to retire from the bench at age 70 with a taxpayer funded pension of 100% of his salary at the time of retirement. Put simply, if congress votes in a 50% wage increase for the judiciary, Peter’s annual retirement pay will be at least $275,000, This princely amount even though Peter never paid one nickel towards his retirement.
