Hon. Everett O. Inbody, Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals

Hon. Everett O. Inbody, Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals, honored for his distinguished service on all levels of the judiciary within Nebraska and for his work with children throughout the State. 2010 marks Judge Inbody’s 24th year of service on the bench; 5 years in the county/juvenile court, 5 years on the district court bench and the remainder with the Court of Appeals. Inbody is presently serving as Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals, a position he has held since 2004.

In 2005, Judge Inbody was appointed co-chairman of the Commission of Children in the Courts where he utilized his experience in juvenile and criminal court to study appropriate steps for the judicial system to insure the court system’s responsiveness to children. As a result of his commission work, Judge Inbody implemented the Court of Appeals' "rocket docket" for abuse/neglect cases to move cases of children through the system at a more rapid pace.
