New York State Supreme Court Justice Spencer Luddington has reportedly ruled salary increases for Onondaga County legislators were passed improperly; however a raise for Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney will stand.

According to an article on Syracuse.com, Judge Luddington ruled “the legislature did not properly advertise its pay raises and a resolution increasing their salaries was improperly done.”

Onondaga County Comptroller Bob Antonacci sued Mahoney and county legislators earlier this year, claiming their pay raises were illegal.

Antonacci had also included the county’s personnel director in the lawsuit; however, Luddington dismissed that injunction.
