SOMERVILLE, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey judge has shot down the Morris County sheriff’s plan to award bonuses to all his office’s employees.

Sheriff Edward Rochford said he wanted to give an extra $2,250 to each of his office’s employees because they performed well and helped get a good accreditation report.

The county government previously said he could not give larger bonuses of $2,500 each. But the sheriff scaled back his request a bit after realizing his budget did not have enough money for the larger amount.

Judge Yolanda Ciccone’s ruling on Friday said that the sheriff’s office employees’ salaries much fit in the county government’s ranges.

She left the door open for him to take the issue to trial, according to NJ.com (https://bit.ly/1yLGH0V ).
