Grand Island Judge Mark Young to Retire

Friday, July 16, 2021

Judge of the District Court, 9th Judicial District (Grand Island and Kearney) Mark J. Young is retiring September 1, 2021.

In his letter to the Governor and the Chief Justice, Young wrote, “It has been an honor to serve the citizens of the Ninth Judicial District as a judge and I wish to thank the public for all their support during my years of public service. Throughout my career, I have been blessed with the hard work of dedicated staff, court clerks and attorneys and I thank them as well.”

Young serves as Judge of the Central Nebraska Adult Drug Court and, for several years, participated on the Nebraska Supreme Court Committee on Problem-Solving Courts. He lent his time and talents to numerous judicial committees for both the Supreme Court and Nebraska District Judges Association.

Young has served the citizens of Hall and Buffalo Counties (9th Judicial District) since 2015, having been retained in his position by area voters, most recently in 2018.

The first step in replacing Young will be for the Judicial Resources Commission to call a meeting to determine whether, based on judicial workload statistics, his retirement creates a judicial vacancy on the district court for the 9th Judicial District.
