Associated Press -

The Nebraska Supreme Court has named a Grand Island judge to oversee the courts in Hall and Buffalo counties in 2014.

Hall County Judge Art Wetzel will oversee the courts in the 9th Judicial District this year.

Wetzel worked as a lawyer for 27 years before becoming a judge in 2011. He previously worked as deputy Adams County attorney and as a defense attorney.

He was nominated by his fellow county judges.

Presiding judges oversee court services within their district and serve as the point of contact for state and local agencies. They're also responsible for hiring and disciplining county court staff and setting local policies.
