In this report, Star reporters unravel the relaxed working hours of Kansas City municipality judges by investigating the judges' entries and exits from the city garage where the judges park. They find out that on an average these judges work less than 30 hours a week. From the questionnaire, "the judges do little legal research or issue written opinions; most of their job is done from the bench". The report also shows how the judges arrive late at work and leave early by 3 p.m. And furthermore, for taking off early on Friday's and 45 days off each year, these judges are paid nearly $119,000 a year- higher than any Missouri judge except those on the State Supreme Court.
