In Nebraska eFiling is currently only available to attorneys in good standing with the Nebraska State Bar.  Registration for eFiling is mandatory for any Nebraska attorney practicing in the trial or appellate courts and requires a subscriber account through Nebraska.gov. 

Rules governing electronic filing and service in the trial courts and electronic filing and service in the appellate courts have been established by the Supreme Court.

Electronic service (eService) is the transmission of documents to any party in a case via the eFiling System. An attorney who has registered to use eFiling agrees to receive service of any document, other than service of a summons or initial pleading, via email, rather than through traditional means (mail, hand-delivery, etc.).

Electronic notice (eNotice) is the transmission of orders, notices, and other court entries via email to all attorneys and those persons appearing pro se who are registered to use eNotice unless other law, statute, or court rule requires transmittal by U.S. Mail.

Currently, eFiling is available for all case types, as long as the case has been created in the trial court case management system, known as JUSTICE, or the appellate court case management system, known as SCCALES.  New civil cases can be initiated through eFiling in the county or district courts.  New criminal case filing is available for county attorneys.
