Hutton Given State Bar Foundation Public Service Award
To a room filled with lawyer and judges who also serve their communities as volunteers, Judge Hutton noted, “The quality of life we enjoy in Nebraska is in no small measure because of the efforts each of you put forth in our communities. As volunteers, mentors, and role models you promote and represent civility and professionalism in the practice of law. The efforts for which I am being recognized were inspired by you and accomplished through the tireless dedication of many others similarly moved by your example.”

Through the Eyes of a Child Initiative
Nebraska Children Assisted in Adjusting to Court Setting
When children attend court hearings, they can be confused or anxious about what is happening. To provide a measure of comfort, Nebraska judges are giving children booklets to help explain the court process.
“These booklets give children who are coming to court a familiar outlet that can relieve their stress, explain in part how the system works, and most importantly let them be themselves while reminding the rest of us why we are there,” said Judge Larry Gendler, Separate Juvenile Court in Sarpy County.
