U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired today’s nomination hearing and introduced Brian Buescher, the nominee for U.S. District Judge for the District of Nebraska.
Text as prepared for delivery is below:
This morning, I’d first like to welcome Brian Buescher, who has been nominated to serve on Nebraska’s federal district court.
Brian Buescher is a native Nebraskan who grew up working on his family’s farm.
He is a lucky husband and a proud father of five children, who I’d also like to welcome today.
Brian is a Cornhusker, having earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln before going on to receive his law degree from Georgetown University, where he was the Editor in Chief of the Georgetown Journal of Legal Ethics.
But perhaps Brian’s most notable academic success was being named valedictorian of his 28-person graduating class at Sandy Creek High School.
He has spent his entire legal career practicing in Nebraska—accruing a broad range of experience from representing Nebraska farmers to protecting victims of domestic violence—and currently leads the agriculture litigation team for Kutak Rock LLP, where he works in the firm’s Omaha office.
He’s a Nebraskan through and through. And, in Nebraska, we maintain a commitment to the rule of law and the Constitution.
On behalf of the Committee, I want to welcome Mr. Buescher.
