Case Summary

S-20-0481 Eddy Champion and Fraternal Order of Police No. 78 (Appellants) v. Hall County, Nebraska, Hall County Department of Corrections, Hall County Board of Corrections and Hall County Grievance Committee

Hall County District Court, Hon. John H. Marsh

Attorneys: Thomas P. McCarty (Keating, O’Gara, Nedved & Peter, PC, LLO, for Appellants); Ashley H. Connell, Erin Ebeler Rolf (Woods Aitken | LLP, for Appellees).

Civil: Breach of Bargaining Agreement; Jurisdiction

Proceedings Below: On June 10, 2020, the district court dismissed the Petition in Error for want of jurisdiction, holding the Committee was not a “tribunal, board, or officer exercising judicial functions and inferior in jurisdiction of the district court” within the meaning of Neb. Rev. Stat. § 25-1901.

Issues on Appeal: Whether the district court erred 1) in holding it had no jurisdiction over Appellants’ Petition in Error; and 2) when it assumed that the bargaining agreement is unambiguous and the Committee was not required to decide an adjudicative fact.
