The Senate voted Wednesday to confirm President Trump’s nomination of Brian C. Buescher to the U.S. District Court bench. Once the President signs the judicial commission, and the oath of office is administered, Judge Buescher will begin his official duties.

“The judges of the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska welcome our newest colleague,” said John Gerrard, the court’s Chief Judge. “Brian Buescher’s distinguished career and his long history of public service ensure he will be an outstanding addition to Nebraska’s federal bench.”

Judge Gerrard thanked the President and both Senators for their commitment to the selection of a highly qualified candidate to fill the vacancy created by Judge Laurie Smith Camp’s transition to senior status in 2018. Gerrard said, “We are grateful to Nebraska’s Senators for ensuring that Nebraska’s federal court has the resources needed to provide timely access to justice for all the people it serves.”

Buescher has experience in a variety of areas, including agribusiness, environmental, food law, real estate, product liability, class action, banking, and insurance bad faith litigation. He has litigated cases in a variety of jurisdictions, including Nebraska and Iowa state and federal courts, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Nebraska, and numerous other state and federal courts.
