It’s good to be an ex-judge.

You remember Seamus McCaffery, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court justice who retired earlier this fall just as the Judicial Conduct Board was beginning an inquiry stemming from the porn email scandal uncovered by Attorney General Kathleen Kane? (The investigation ended when he stepped down.)

Looks like retirement will treat him well: The Associated Press reports McCaffery will collect a $11,000-a-month pension in retirement. That’s on top of cashing out $455,000 of his own contributions, plus interest.

“His years of service include time in the military and as a judge in Philadelphia and on state Superior Court,” AP explained.

McCaffery announced his retirement in October.
