Two Nominees Forwarded for Workers’ Compensation Court


LINCOLN, NE -- Today, the Judicial Nominating Commission for the Workers’ Compensation Court provided the following names for consideration by Governor Jim Pillen: Jill K. Hamer Conway of Omaha and Brynne Holsten Puhl of Lincoln.

The Workers’ Compensation Court administers and enforces all provisions of the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Act, which includes original jurisdiction of all claims for workers’ compensation benefits resulting from occupational injuries or illnesses. The seven appointed judges have statewide jurisdiction and travel across the state to hold hearings.

The primary place of office for the judicial vacancy is Lincoln, Lancaster County. The vacancy is due to the retirement of Judge James R. Coe, effective April 15.
