District Judge Dan Bryan to Retire December 31, 2016

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

Judge of the District Court, 1st Judicial District, Daniel E. Bryan, Jr., is retiring effective December 31, 2016. In his announcement letter to Chief Justice Mike Heavican, Judge Bryan thanked the people of the Tenth and First Judicial Districts of Nebraska for trusting him to serve as a state court judge for the last 27 years. “Always in my heart, Nebraska is home wherever I go,” wrote Bryan. Judge Bryan served Nebraskans as both a county court judge and a district court judge. He sat on the county court bench of the 10th Judicial District from 1989 to 1999 and on the district court bench from 1999 to his 2016 retirement. Judge Bryan has served on numerous judicial committees for both the county and district courts throughout his career. After taking the bench in 1999, Judge Bryan was retained in his position by area voters, most recently in 2014. The first step in replacing Judge Bryan will be for the Judicial Resources Commission to call a meeting to determine whether or not, based on judicial workload statistics, his retirement creates a judicial vacancy on the district court for the First Judicial District.
