GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - Judge James Livingston has announced his intention to retire from the 9th Judicial District Court bench.

Livingston intends to retire Oct. 1. He’s been a district court judge since July 1992.

The 9th District covers Hall and Buffalo counties. Livingston’s office is in Grand Island.

The state Judicial Resources Commission will be calling a meeting to determine whether the judgeship must remain in the 9th District or be moved elsewhere. If it remains, then a judicial nominating commission will review applicants and forward the names of finalists to the governor for his consideration.
