State Supreme Court Justice Joyce L. Kennard is joining scores of court staff members in taking a voluntary, four-day unpaid furlough to try to avoid mandatory staff pay cuts in the wake of the state budget crisis. "You cannot ask your staff to be subject to financial sacrifice when you yourself are not subject to it," Kennard said Friday. "I view loyalty as a two-way street." She added that if pay cuts also are imposed on court staff members, she will accept such a cut for herself as well.
