Case Summary

S-22-720 Ray Ryan (Appellant) v. State of Nebraska (Appellee)

Appeal from the District Court for Lancaster County, Judge Andrew R. Jacobsen

Attorneys: Ray Ryan (Self-represented Appellant) and Christian Edmonds (Asst. Attorney General for Appellee)

Civil: In Forma Pauperis and State Tort Claims Act (STCA)

Proceedings below: The trial court denied Appellant’s application to proceed in forma pauperis (IFP), because Appellant failed to state a claim on which relief could be granted and his claim is barred by sovereign immunity. On its own motion, the Supreme Court ordered this case to be transferred from the docket of the Court of Appeals to its docket.

Issues: Appellant makes the following assignment of error:  The District Court erred in denying IFP status to Appellant based on an inappropriate exception to the waiver of sovereign immunity and for Failure to State a Claim, and Dismissing the Case.
