A judicial nominating commission selected four lawyers Monday as finalists to fill the vacancy on the Nebraska Supreme Court created by the sudden resignation of Judge Max Kelch.
Cathy Trent-Vilim is a partner at Lamson, Dugan and Murray and one of the four candidates chosen. Trent-Vilim is a 2002 graduate of the University of Nebraska College of Law and works in the areas of appellate litigation, commercial and insurance law and legal malpractice defense.
Gov. Pete Ricketts will now schedule interviews with the finalists before appointing one to the Supreme Court.
