LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts announced that all U.S. and Nebraska flags are to be flown at half-staff on Thursday, March 22, 2018 in honor of Nebraska Supreme Court Justice John F. Wright, who passed away at the age of 72.


Earlier this week, Governor Ricketts issued a statement following Justice Wright’s passing:


“Justice Wright served the people of Nebraska honorably throughout his tenure.  He courageously battled illness in recent years as he continued to serve.  Susanne, the kids, and I send our thoughts and prayers to the Wright family as they mourn his passing.”


Flags will be flown at half-staff from sunrise until sunset on March 22.
