Box Butte County looking for a new judge

Posted: Updated:

Western Nebraska will see a new face in the Judicial Court District.

This week the Nebraska Supreme Court announced it would accept applicants for a County Court Judge.

The 12th Judicial Court District's Judgeship was previously located in Rushville, but the new Judgeship will be moved to Alliance.

The Nebraska Judicial Resources Commission determined moving the Judgeship would make it more attractive to potential applicants.

Putting the Judgeship in Box Butte County puts a Judge in a county seeing an increase in caseloads.

Applicants will be considered for the position during a public hearing February 1st at the Box Butte County Courthouse.
