Court of Appeals Judge Theodore Carlson passes away at the age of 72
Fellow judges and the attorneys who appeared before Carlson respected him, said Nebraska Supreme Court Judge Michael McCormack, who was Carlson’s friend since law school at Creighton University in the 1960s.
Carlson was appointed to the appeals court by former Governor Ben Nelson in 1998. He represented District 2, which encompasses most of Douglas County. Carlson had been a Douglas County district judge from 1983 until his appointment to the appeals court. He also had been an Omaha municipal judge and assistant city attorney since earning his law degree from Creighton University in 1968.
