After President Obama nominated Robert Rossiter, Jr., of Omaha to the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska, U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement in praise of Rossiter and Nebraska’s Senior Senator Deb Fischer:

“I am tremendously grateful that for nearly two years—first alongside Senator Johanns and now as our state’s Senior Senator—Deb Fischer worked tirelessly to see that the Administration nominates a qualified and well-respected Nebraskan. Bob Rossiter is a qualified nominee with a breadth of experience and I trust he will receive strong bipartisan support in the Senate.”

Robert F. Rossiter, Jr., is a partner at Fraser Stryker in Omaha. From 1982 to 1983, Rossiter served as a law clerk to the Honorable C. Arlen Beam of the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska. He is the President-Elect of the Nebraska State Bar Association. He received his J.D. cum laude from Creighton University School of Law in 1981 and his B.S. from Purdue University in 1978.
