Dakota County should soon have a new state judge hearing cases.
The Nominating Commission for Nebraska’s Sixth Judicial District has recommended two names for Governor Pete Ricketts’ consideration.
They are Bryan Meismer of Fremont; and Matthew Munderloh of Omaha.
Whoever is selected will preside over cases in Dakota, Dixon, and Cedar Counties.
In 2018, 71% of the cases in the district were filed in Dakota County.
The court vacancy is due to the resignation of Judge Paul J. Vaughan.
