An Act authorizing the Massachusetts Retirement Board to provide certain retirement and medical benefits to Associate Justice Patrick J. Riley of the Superior Court..
 

              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
 

              SECTION 1.  Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary and in order to promote the public good, the Massachusetts State Retirement Board shall retire Patrick J. Riley, an Associate Justice of the Superior Court.  In consideration of his years of public service to the City of Lynn between 1971 to 1975;  his service as an Assistant District Attorney in Essex County from 1976 to 1982; together with his tenure on the Superior Court since 2002, the annual amount of pension payable to Judge Patrick J. Riley under this act shall be  calculated pursuant to the provisions of §65D of c.32 in an amount equal to the retirement allowance  which would have been paid had he continued in service as an Associate Justice of the Superior Court and retired at the mandatory retirement age of seventy. (All retirement benefits, without restriction, pursuant to Chapter 32 of the General Laws which Judge Riley would have ordinarily been entitled to, had he continued his service until age seventy, shall be made available to him upon his retirement and (2) the retirement allowances payable to him shall be increased in the manner provided to all retired justices of the Trial Court pursuant to chapter 32 of the General Laws.)

              SECTION 2. The retirement provided for herein is not an accidental disability retirement and shall not be  subject to any disability retirement provisions.

              SECTION 3.  The provisions of this Act shall take effect upon its passage.
