Several Neb. attorneys have submitted their applications to fill vacant court judge positions


A Norfolk, Nebraska lawyers and one West Point lawyer have submitted their applications to fill one of two vacant Northeast Nebraska court judge positions.

Officials with the Nebraska Judicial Branch released the names this week.

Both judgeships, one in county court and another in district court, are open due to one retirement and one resignation.

The Judicial Branch says those who have submitted their applications to fill the judicial vacancy for district court judge in the seventh judicial district include Norfolk lawyers Michael Brogan, Patrick Carney and Mark Johnson along with West Point attorney Daniel Bracht.

They are hoping to fill the vacant position left by the retirement of District Judge Robert Enz.

The district includes Antelope, Cuming, Knox, Madison, Pierce, Stanton and Wayne counties.

Meanwhile, a county court judge's seat for the same judicial district was left vacant by the resignation of judge Richard Krepela.

Carney and Bracht have also applied for this position along with fellow lawyers Michael Long, Dennis Morland and Dave Ptak all of Norfolk.

The Judicial Nominating Commission is planning to hold public hearings for both of these vacancies on February 25th.

The county court judge's hearing will be at 9 a.m. while the hearing for the district judge position will be held at 1 p.m.

Both hearings will be held at the Madison County Courthouse in Madison.

The public is welcome to attend.
