2012 judicial performance evaluation
Every two years, the Nebraska State Bar Association compiles responses from lawyers to evaluate judges in the state. Subjects are rated in seven categories, then a determination is made for whether the judge should be retained. The seven categories considered are: legal analysis; impartiality; attentiveness; opinions; judicial temperament and demeanor; appropriate communication; and timeliness.
90.7 percent of respondents stated that Judge Troia should be retained in office. To read the full evaluation, see: Nebraska State Bar Association, 2012 Evaluation Results.
Troia began his career in 1969 as an Assistant Omaha City Prosecutor. In 1971, he became a Deputy Attorney in Douglas County. He then worked as a private practice lawyer from 1974 until he was appointed Municipal Court Judge in Omaha in 1978. He was promoted to County Court Judge of the 4th District in 1985 and then to District Court Judge in 1991.
