Trump Nominates Kutak Rock’s Buescher for Federal Judgeship
President Donald Trump nominated Brian C. Buescher of Omaha to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska Wednesday, Oct. 11. Nebraska Senators Deb Fischer and Ben Sasse recommended Buescher for the position.
Buescher will replace Chief Judge Laurie Smith Camp, who is taking senior status effective Dec. 1.
“Brian Buescher has had a successful legal career,” Fischer said in a release. “His background, experience and judicial philosophy are the reasons I recommended him to President Trump for this judgeship. I look forward to a fair and swift Senate confirmation process so that Mr. Buescher can soon serve on the Nebraska Federal Bench.”
Currently, Buescher is a partner at Kutak Rock LLP in Omaha where he leads the firm’s agribusiness litigation team. He was picked by Fischer and Sasse after interviewing several candidates.
Buescher practices in the areas of environmental, food law, real estate, product liability and banking.
“Congratulations to Brian Buescher on his nomination to serve as a U.S. District Court Judge,” Governor Pete Rickets said in a press release. “Over the years, Brian has proven himself to be an incredibly talented legal expert.
"He has the temperament to be a great judge, and will approach each case he is given with a fair and open mind. I urge the U.S. Senate to act quickly and to confirm Brian to the bench.”
Buescher graduated from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln with a B.A. in Political Science and Economics. He received his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center.
“Brian Buescher is a proud Nebraskan and will serve our state well in his new calling,” Sasse said.
