The Clerk of the Nebraska Court of Appeals sent the following notice to attorneys and self-represented litigants who are scheduled to argue before the Court of Appeals during the April 2020 session:

The Nebraska Court of Appeals is carefully monitoring the evolving circumstances presented by the spread of the novel coronavirus and the COVID-19 disease. Therefore, the Court of Appeals is considering submitting cases on the April 2020 Call without oral argument to limit exposure to the public and persons at higher risk of developing COVID-19 illness. These are cases scheduled to be heard on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, at the Nebraska State Capitol Building.

Counsel and self-represented litigants are reminded that:

  1.  Any party, pursuant to Neb. Ct. R. App. P. § 2-111(B)(6), may elect to waive oral argument and submit the case only on briefs, unless otherwise directed by the court.
  2. The Court of Appeals may, pursuant to Neb. Ct. R. App. P.§  2-111(B)(1)(a), order submission of any case without oral argument. In the event such order is entered, any party may file a motion requesting oral argument pursuant to the procedure in § 2-111(B)(1)(b).
