The newest member of the Nebraska Supreme Court will be sworn in next week.

The court says a ceremony for 56-year-old William Cassel, of O'Neill, is on Monday at the Capitol in Lincoln.

Gov. Dave Heineman appointed Cassel to the high court in April.
Cassel, who served on the Nebraska Court of Appeals since 2003,
replaces Justice John Gerrard, who left the Supreme Court for an
appointment as a federal judge.

Cassel spent 12 years as a district court judge, and worked as a
private-private attorney in Ainsworth from 1979 to 1992.

He will serve as the justice from the Supreme Court's third district in eastern Nebraska, which includes 19 counties and parts of Douglas and Sarpy counties around Omaha.
