GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Supreme Court has been chosen to oversee the courts in Hall and Buffalo counties.

The Grand Island Independent reports (https://bit.ly/1ecNnVN ) that 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.
