Night Court in Lancaster County Continues

Monday, August 26, 2019

Lancaster County Court has announced the continuation of night court through the end of 2019 and into 2020. Sessions are scheduled quarterly in courtroom #24 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Upcoming dates include: 

  • 2019 - September 26 and December 19
  • 2020 - March 26, June 25, September 24, December 17

In a Nebraska Public Radio story, Lincoln city attorney Jeff Kirkpatrick noted that “night court provides people with misdemeanors a time to appear in court without having to miss work or make different arrangements for their children.”

"A lot of this (programming) comes from the leadership in the court system," Kirkpatrick said, "they want to make sure that we have a court system here in Nebraska that is responsive to people’s needs and really is open to folks and doesn’t set up unnecessary obstacles between people and justice."
