Presidents of Nebraska’s three trial judge associations assumed their posts last week following their business meetings in Omaha during their annual judges’ conferences.
The Nebraska District Judges Association elected the Honorable Steve Burns from Lincoln as their association president. The Nebraska County Judges Association will also be led by a judge from Lincoln, the Honorable Laurie Yardley. Nebraska’s Separate Juvenile Judges Association will be headed by Judge Robert O’Neal .
Each judge association president will have an individual list of priorities and committees but all will have regular contact with the Chief Justice and the Administrative Office of the Courts and Probation.
