Today, President Donald Trump nominated Brian C. Buescher of Omaha, Nebraska to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska. Nebraska Senators Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) and Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) recommended Mr. Buescher to the president for this judgeship.

“Brian Buescher has had a successful legal career. His background, experience, and judicial philosophy are the reasons I recommended him to President Trump for this judgeship. I look forward to a fair and swift Senate confirmation process so that Mr. Buescher can soon serve on the Nebraska federal bench,” said Senator Fischer.

“Nebraska’s commitment to the rule of law and the Constitution are hallmarks of our state. Brian Buescher is a proud Nebraskan and will serve our state well in his new calling,” said Senator Sasse.

Now that the president has announced Buescher’s nomination, the Senate confirmation process begins. There will be a confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee and once that hearing has concluded, the committee will vote on the nomination. If the nomination clears committee, it will then head to the full Senate for a vote.

Following Chief Judge Laurie Smith Camp’s announcement that she is taking senior status effective December 1, 2018, Fischer and Sasse launched an application process for Nebraskans interested in filling the vacancy on the court. The Nebraska senators interviewed several qualified candidates before selecting Buescher as their choice to recommend to the president.

Currently, Buescher is a partner at Kutak Rock LLP where he leads the firm’s agribusiness litigation team. He also practices in the areas of environmental, food law, real estate, product liability, and banking.

Buescher graduated from the University of Nebraska Lincoln with a B.A. in Political Science and Economics. He received his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center.
