A Nebraska Court of Appeals judge has been chosen to fill a vacancy on the state Supreme Court.

Gov. Dave Heineman said Thursday that he had chosen William Cassel, of O'Neill, to join the Nebraska Supreme Court. He replaces
Judge John Gerrard, who left the high court for appointment as a
U.S. District Court judge in Nebraska.

Cassel will be eligible to begin serving immediately because he
already is a judge.

Cassel has served on the Appeals Court since 2003. Before that
he was a district judge for 12 years.

He has participated in roughly 5,000 appeals cases and written 650 opinions. Cassel also has helped the University of Nebraska's Law College teach students about ethics and professionalism.
