District Court Judge J. Michael Coffey to Retire June 1, 2023

Monday, April 10, 2023

Judge of the District Court in Omaha, 4th Judicial District, J. Michael Coffey, is retiring on June 1, 2023.

In his retirement announcement to the Chief Justice, Coffey wrote, “I have genuinely enjoyed my nearly 25 years on the bench. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the citizens of Douglas County and the State of Nebraska.”

Coffey has served the citizens of Douglas County (4th Judicial District) from 1998 to his 2023 retirement. After taking the bench he was retained in his position by area voters, most recently in 2020.

The first step in deciding whether Coffey’s judicial position will need to be filled is for the Judicial Resources Commission to call a meeting to determine whether or not, based on judicial workload statistics, his retirement creates a judicial vacancy on the district court for the 4th Judicial District.
