Thursday, December 15, 2016

Attorneys practicing in Nebraska can now eFile in any level of court in the state. The county and district courts, separate juvenile courts, Workers’ Compensation Court, Court of Appeals and Supreme Court are all now accepting electronic filings through a single web-based system. Unified access for attorneys to file documents through a single online structure is the realization of a Nebraska Judicial Branch strategic initiative started in 2008. With the connection of all state courts into one system, Nebraska has created one of the most comprehensive state eFiling systems in the nation. “The Court is extremely pleased with the work that has been done to bring this project to completion,” said Chief Justice Mike Heavican. “While there will always be more projects to design and programs to develop, we take pride in this great accomplishment.” The Judicial Branch will continue to expand and enhance their suite of online services which provide an alternative way for attorneys and the public to access court information and conduct business with the courts. The 2017-2018 technology strategic plan is published on the Judicial Branch website www.supremecourt.nebraska.gov. Judicial Branch eFiling saves courts hundreds of thousands of dollars in repetitive data entry while increasing accuracy in data transfer and recordkeeping.
