Ind. Decisions - More on "Justices weigh walkout fines levied on Democrats"

Re this ILB entry from Dec. 31st, quoting a Fort Wayne Journal Gazette editorial, Rochester attorney Ted Waggoner (who blogs at "Lawyers with Troubles") writes:

The FWJG's statement is wrong that "For example, a debtor cannot simply tell an employer to withhold money from a check; the debtor must go to court and obtain an order to garnishee wages."

Of course a debtor can assign wages, but a creditor cannot. But does an employer have to go to court for a wage setoff? Is the State an employer of the legislators?

There are good questions, but the one quoted does not fit in the "good question" catagory.
