Rule 9-2. Continuances

   In addition to the requirements set forth in Neb. Rev. Stat. § 25-1148, a motion for continuance shall set forth whether the opposing party has any objection.

   If the opposing party does not object to the continuance, the party filing the motion shall be responsible for arranging, as soon as practical, a new date and time with all opposing parties and the court. If the opposing party does object, it is the responsibility of the party filing the motion to set the motion for hearing. Except for exigent circumstances, a motion for a continuance shall be made at least 5 working days prior to the hearing for which the continuance is requested.

   Stipulations for continuances are subject to the approval of the court based upon the reasons given, the progression schedule, and the availability of an alternate date. All orders for a continuance of a hearing will specify the date and time of the rescheduled hearing. Upon the filing of a motion for continuance, absent a prompt request for hearing by another party, the court may grant or deny the motion for continuance ex parte.

Approved effective October 27, 1995; amended September 9, 2010.
