The petition of the day is:


Issue: (1) Whether the Compensation Clause prohibited Congress from disallowing certain annual increases in judicial salary contemplated by the Ethics Reform Act of 1989 when the statutes disallowing those increases were enacted into law before the increases were scheduled to take effect; and (2) whether, under the Act of Nov. 28, 2001, Congress’s failure in 2007 and 2010 to pass specific legislation authorizing judicial salary increases prevented increases for those years from taking effect.
