    "The court system reports there are 672 magistrates across the state, so only about 1.5 percent have left because of the same-sex marriage ruling."

    I might note that in US States a magistrate, although also commonly referred to as a "judge", has less authority & responsibilities than a judge, and may not have a legal degree (JD). In this case the objection causing 16 magistrates to step down is the requirement to perform gay marriages.

    magistrate |ˈmajəˌstrāt|
    noun
    a civil officer or lay judge who administers the law, especially one who conducts a court that deals with minor offenses and holds preliminary hearings for more serious ones.

    Looks like a good opportunity to clear out some dead wood.
