The Nebraska Supreme Court requests that attorneys review and comment on newly proposed amendments to the case progression standards and court rules.
The Supreme Court appointed separate district court and county court Case Management committees in 2010 to review Nebraska trial court case progression standards and propose amendments to the current standards set forth at Neb. Ct. R. §§ 6-101 through 6-103. The committees were also asked to comment on the National Center for State Courts Model Time Standards. Each committee has submitted to the Supreme Court proposed sets of standards, and the Supreme Court seeks comment on both the committee recommendations and the National Center for State Courts Model Time Standards. In addition, amendments to Neb. Ct. R. §§ 6-101 through 6-103 have likewise been proposed to effectuate any changes in the standards.
Anyone desiring to comment on the proposed amendments should do so in writing to the office of the Clerk of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals, P.O. Box 98910, Lincoln, NE 68509-8910, or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 1, 2012.
A copy of the proposed standards and rule amendments is available on the Nebraska Supreme Court’s Web site address http://www.supremecourt.ne.gov/proposed-rule-amendments, or a hard copy may be obtained from the office of the Clerk of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals upon request.
