Freeholders to Appeal Judge’s Bigley Ruling-6-16-2006

By Rick Racela

CREST HAVEN – Freeholders unanimously agreed in closed session June 13 to appeal Judge William Todd’s ruling that the county hike the pay of 18 members of the Prosecutor’s staff.
County Administrator Steve O’Connor said the county will maintain that decision “was applied beyond the scope of Bigley,” the legislation cited in the action filed by Prosecutor Robert Taylor.
Taylor said he was “disappointed” and “will probably cross-appeal on the issue decided by the judge not to allow us to reopen the collective bargaining agreements.”
O’Connor said the county is “exploring” asking Todd for a stay in his ruling because “we don’t want for the employes to have repay if the county is successful.”
The increases total $64,761.
Taylor said he will oppose that because “the county has to show the likelihood of prevailing on the appeal, and I don’t think they can show that.”
