A Nebraska attorney’s nomination to the federal bench has gone to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer introduced Brian Buescher of Omaha to the panel, supporting his nomination by President Donald Trump.
“Brian Buescher hails from the small town of Beatrice, Nebraska. His work ethic was ingrained at a young age while growing up on his family’s farm where they raised corn, milo, wheat, alfalfa, hogs, and cattle. After graduating from Sandy Creek High School and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Brian attended Georgetown University Law School,” Fischer told the committee.
Buescher has been nominated to succeed federal District Judge Laurie Smith Camp who has announced plans to take senior status.
Fischer and fellow Republican Sen. Ben Sasse recommended Buescher. Buescher is a partner at Kutak Rock in Omaha, leading the agribusiness litigation team.
