LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Judges from Hall and Otoe counties and an attorney from Gage County are finalists for an expected opening on the Nebraska Supreme Court.

State officials announced Wednesday that Otoe County District Judge Jeffrey Funke, Hall County District Judge Mark Young and private attorney David Bargen, of Adams, were advanced as candidates to be considered by Gov. Pete Ricketts. Seven people had applied for review by the state’s Judicial nominating Commission.

The opening will be created by the retirement of Justice William Connolly, who is stepping down effective Aug. 1.
