Lincoln, Neb. — Gov. Pete Ricketts has appointed an Omaha attorney to fill a vacancy on the Nebraska Supreme Court.

The governor’s office announced Wednesday that Ricketts has chosen Jonathan J. Papik to replace Justice Max Kelch, who resigned after less than two years on the bench after an ethics complaint was filed against him.

Papik served as a law clerk for the U.S. Court of Appeals under Judge Laurence H. Silberman and Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, who is now on the U.S. Supreme Court.

In private practice, he focused on constitutional and governmental litigation, business litigation and legal malpractice defense.
Papik is Ricketts’ fourth appointment to the state Supreme Court.

Papik will represent the 4th Judicial District, which includes portions of Douglas and Sarpy counties.
