A judge has announced his intention to retire after dispensing federal justice in Nebraska for more than 44 years. Senior U.S. District Judge Warren Urbom said Thursday he's sent a letter to President Obama, indicating he'll step down from the bench in April.

Urbom told the president, "My term has been one of thorough happiness."

The 87-year-old Urbom says he reduced his schedule a few years back to three or four days a week. He says now it's time to quit. What will he do with his free time? The judge said he doesn't know, "other than have a good time."
