Senators introduce nominee for Nebraska's U.S. District Court


A Nebraska judge was introduced to the Senate Judiciary Committee in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, and he is expected to serve as a judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska.

U.S. Senator Deb Fischer introduced Brian C. Buescher of Beatrice at his nomination hearing after he was nominated by President Trump to fill the vacancy on the court created when Chief Judge Laurie Smith Camp entered senior status this fall.

Fischer and Senator Ben Sasse recommended President Trump nominate Buescher for this judgeship.

"Nebraska is home to many preeminent and talented legal minds, so narrowing the list of applicants presents a challenge," Fischer said. "But after extensive consideration and interviews with qualified candidates, Senator Sasse and I agreed on recommending Mr. Buescher to President Trump to be the next judge on Nebraska’s federal district court."

After graduating from Sandy Creek High School and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Brian attended Georgetown University Law School.

There, he was Editor-in-Chief of The Georgetown Journal of Legal Ethics and vice president of the Student Bar Association.

Buescher is currently a partner at Kutak Rock, Nebraska’s largest law firm, where he leads the firm’s agriculture litigation team.

"He’s a Nebraskan through and through," Sasse said. "And, in Nebraska, we maintain a commitment to the rule of law and the Constitution."
