The Nebraska Appellate Courts Online Library is the repository of the official published judicial opinions of the Nebraska Supreme Court and the Nebraska Court of Appeals.  Effective January 1, 2016, the Nebraska Supreme Court designated the online certified PDF opinion as the official court opinion for the Nebraska appellate courts, beginning with Volume 275 of the Nebraska Reports and Volume 16 of the Nebraska Appellate Reports.  All previous official bound volumes of the appellate courts are available on the online library in scanned PDF format.  See Neb. Ct. R. App. P. §§ 2-112(C) and 2-102(E)(3).

The online library was created as a service to the public to increase accessibility to the official opinions by providing them free of charge in a permanent manner, thereby containing costs and increasing operational efficiency.

Advance opinions and lists released by the Nebraska Supreme Court and the Nebraska Court of Appeals are accessible on the Judicial Branch Website via links to the Nebraska Appellate Courts Online Library for 90 days.  The advance opinions and lists are also accessible on the online library.  Once an advance opinion becomes certified, it will replace the advance opinion and will become part of the permanent online library.

Posting Times:  Generally, the Supreme Court opinions are filed 8 a.m. on Fridays, and the Court of Appeals opinions are filed 8 a.m. on Tuesdays, on the day on which they are released.
